What Is a Virtual Race?
A virtual race is a race that you can run in any location. You simply track your run and share your results online. You can even upload pics and video and be incorporated into our main event online if your into that kind of thing.
UPDATE: We are currently developing a new tool that will make it possible to fundraise per km of activity during your training and for the virtual race itself. Our co-founders are in the midst of a cross-Canada tour testing out the new tool. Check out the new app and pledge your support for them per km to raise funds for an important renewable energy project here:
Benefits to Participating in the International Virtual Race
Do It Anywhere: You can run your race at your pace wherever you like and on any terrain - trails, streets, sidewalks, mountains, coastlines, anywhere you can find a 10k or 2k distance. We have participants from as far away as Morocco and Australia joining us in The Great Climate International Virtual Race. Be part of a global experience for a great cause from whereever you are!
Join us Anytime that Works For You on Race Weekend: You can complete your virtual race any time of the last weekend in October 2017. No more waking up early to run, unless you're a morning person.
Beginner Runners Welcome: Running a race can be is intimidating for some people. Huge crowds, loud music and the stress of competing isn’t for everyone. Run or walk at your own pace.
Do Overs: There are no do overs when it comes to climate change but in the Great Climate Race International Virtual Race you can do as many 10k or 2km run or walks as you want on race weekend and we will count your best time towards prizes (did we mention we have awesome prizes?).

How Does The Race Support Climate Solutions?
Contribute to a Solar Project: Climate change is a race against time. We all need to work together to speed up the transition to renewable energy and it all starts in our own communities.
By participating in The Great Climate Race as a virtual runner or walker you have the opportunity to raise money for or make a donation to a solar project. Fundraising is optional.
Just by being part of the event you are helping to raise awareness about climate solutions in your own community and promoting solar energy as a safe and affordable alternative to fossil fuel dependence.
Everyone Has a Roll to Play: You don’t have to be an elite runner or an expert about renewable energy. You just have to want change and to have fun! We’ll take care of the rest.
