    How does a Virtual Triathlon work? A virtual triathlon is a race that can be completed at any location. For the swim: You can swim in a pool, a lake or the sea! For the run (or walk): You can walk, use a treadmill, run or walk outside or participate in another race. For the bike ride: You can cycle on a static bike, a gym bike, a recumbent bike or cycle outside. You can complete your virtual triathlon in your own time, at your own pace, anywhere in the world. Once you’ve completed your triathlon, simply send us evidence (email to admin@runforit.today) of your completion of the distances: • A photo of your fitbit/strava/garmin etc showing your distances and times • A photo of the treadmill or bike display showing your distances and times • SwimTag results (if your local pool offers this!). If sending photographic evidence is a problem: Don’t worry. We know that not everybody has a running watch or a cycling computer, and we certainly don’t expect you to go out and buy one! There are plenty of free apps available for your smart phone that will log times and distances for you: Strava, MapMyRun, MapMyRide, MapMyWalk, MyFitnessPal and GoogleFit to name but a few. Installing and using them is simple and straightforward, and helps you to keep track of your fitness.
