Kick-off the new year by pushing your physical limits – Decathlon’s annual race is back with the Decathlon Virtual Run 2021! After its first edition in 2019 and hiatus in 2020, the race is back with a twist: its three-legged virtual challenges will allow you to participate anytime and anywhere you want.
In addition, you’ll get to achieve your fitness goals feasibly with this virtual event’s carefully designed challenges; the progressive difficulty of the three legs over the three months of this virtual challenge will ensure that you reach new heights in an attainable and safe manner. Whether you’re a beginner to the sport, or an avid runner, this virtual run welcomes all to participate.
Of course, participants will be entitled to a race pack containing Decathlon Running goodies. On top of that, finishers of all three challenges get to walk home with exclusive finisher entitlements like finisher pins, finisher t-shirts, hydration belts and more! Entitlements worth up to $45!
The three-legged virtual challenge
While the race will not be taking place on a particular day due to COVID-19, experience free reign in completing this virtual challenge. Decide your runs however and wherever you want them – so long as you complete all three legs of the entire challenge.
LEG 1: 21KM ANYWHERE (1 – 31 March 2021)
Welcome to the first leg of the challenge, where you get to ease into the groove of things with a range of options! Whether you choose to walk or run, alone or with a group of friends, all you have to do is complete 21km by the stipulated end date.
LEG 2: 10KM TRAIL/TRACK (1 – 30 April 2021)
If you’re not used to trail or track running, here’s the part that’s gonna be a worthy challenge for you! Conquer new heights by completing a short yet formidable distance over trail terrains in Singapore, and/or challenge yourself physically and mentally by lapping up rounds at your most convenient stadium tracks.
LEG 3: 7KM FINALE (1 – 15 May 2021)
Now that you are at your peak performance after the first two legs of the challenge, surprise and outdo yourself with your best 7km at one go! To mimic the feeling of crossing a finish line, Decathlon has also curated running routes to and from Decathlon’s stores islandwide, where Decathlon members get to redeem two FREE cereal bars upon presenting the Decathlon App.
