With many challenges available and it’s important to choose the right virtual running challenge for you. Race At Your Pace have a wide range of inclusive challenges to make sure that everyone in your team can get involved, and feel motivated!
Distance-Based Running or Walking Challenges
Our monthly virtual challenges are all distance-based. Participants choose their distance and then have the entire month to work toward their goal. Whether you choose a team-based challenge or an individual one, participants can track their progress in our app. Everyone can celebrate milestones together as they collectively work toward their goals. In the app there is an inbuilt leaderboard to encourage friendly competition along the way, too! Our challenges offer flexibility as participants can choose their preferred running routes and pace, and can change the distance if needed at any stage. This makes the challenges inclusive as all participants with varying fitness levels can take part.
Our virtual step challenges work in the same way as our distance-based challenges. The only difference is that these challenges have a daily step target to meet, every day of the month. Employees can use pedometer apps or fitness trackers to monitor their steps and all steps will contribute toward your team goal. This challenge is particularly suitable for employees who may not be avid runners but still want to participate in a virtual fitness challenge with their co-workers. Step challenges encourage overall physical activity throughout the day and promote a healthy lifestyle beyond formal exercise routines.
Many of your team may be keen to get involved in your virtual corporate challenge but don’t want to run. Instead, they may prefer to ride their bike to clock up the miles. Race At Your Pace can help with this, as we also offer virtual biking challenges. Workers who are not runners can join your virtual challenge too! This challenge is also distance-based and everyone has the entire month to complete their chosen goal.
If members of your team are wheelchair users, then they can also be involved in your workplace challenge. Race At Your Pace offers virtual wheelchair challenges with distances ranging from 5 to 100 miles. These inclusive challenges ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to take part and no one is excluded from a positive workplace initiative.
As an organization you may choose to fundraise alongside your virtual challenge. That’s great! It’s super easy to combine fitness and philanthropy by choosing to support a worthy cause. This gives your team extra motivation to stay active and engaged in their challenge. It means that your virtual challenge will benefit your team, your chosen charity and also your organization too.
