Navigate to the ‘Virtual Run’ button in the menu. Log in with your bib number which have been assigned by us and the date of birth that you specified during your registration. You can find these details in the registration confirmation.
Personal bib number
Create your personal bib number in the app. Print the bib number and pin it on during your Virtual Run. You can also share the bib number online with your supporters.
Set your course
Choose a course yourself in your own environment for the distance that you have registered for (full marathon, half marathon or 8K). Avoid running in very small loops, because the GPS signal of your phone may not always be accurate enough. Share the course with your family and friends for support and care on the way (for example via WhatsApp). Live tracking for supporters is not possible via the Virtual Run App.
Date virtual race day
Run your chosen distance on Sunday October 17, 2021 between 00:00:00 and 23:59:59 hours (UTC/GMT +2 hours).
Track your time
We use the GPS of your phone to track your time and distance so bring your phone while running. To begin recording, tap the ‘Start Run’ button at the bottom of the screen. When you have completed your distance tap the ‘End Run’ button. Please note once you have started your timer, you can’t restart it. Pausing is not possible. Run an extra 100 to 200 meters to be sure of a finish time for your distance, GPS registration is not 100% accurate.
If you would like to use a different wearable to track you time of your Virtual Run, you could also choose to enter your time manually to the app. Navigate to the ‘Manual Entry’ field via the ‘Virtual Run’ button in the menu. Enter here your finish time in hours, minutes and seconds and tap the ‘Submit’ button at the bottom of the screen.
Minimum time permitted for entry:
- Full marathon: 2 hours and 15 minutes
- Half marathon: 1 hour and 10 minutes
- 8K: 25 minutes
Digital certificate and medal
Afterwards download your digital certificate and your digital medal and make your own finish line selfie to share with your friends and family.
If you ordered the official medal and/or Mizuno Race Shirt at the time of registration, it will be mailed to your home address no later than 15 November.
