  What is a virtual run?
A virtual run is a race that you can complete at your own pace and time.

Virtual running works exactly the same as any other type of running but the difference is that the entered race can be run at any location, either outside or inside on a treadmill.

All you have to do is register for a race and provide evidence that you have done it. The evidence can be a screenshot of your running app, a photo of the treadmill screen etc. Do check out specific instructions of the event you join for more information.

Virtual races are a great way to stay fit and active all year round, run for good causes and get awesome medals and other entitlements for your participation!

Make-A-Wish Singapore, a non-profit organisation that creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses, invites members of the public to kickstart the festive season with the first virtual Santa Run for Wishes 2020. An annual community and fundraising event by Make-A-Wish Singapore, Santa Run for Wishes returns for its seventh edition this year from 2-19 December 2020 with a brand-new format and exciting activities lined up for all participants.

With the aim to accumulate 21,517km – the distance from Singapore to the North Pole to bring Santa back to spread the festive joy, participants in the virtual run will be able to contribute to the journey by submitting their distance through the 42Race application (available for download on App Store and Google Play). Interested members of the public can register for the 2km, 5km, 10km or 50km (accumulative) race categories for $20 per race entry, with all proceeds going towards granting the wishes of children with critical illnesses.
