What is a Virtual Event?

Virtual events allow for anyone, with any level of experience, to complete a multisport event at their own pace. You will have the convenience of swimming, biking and running on your own schedule anywhere in the world — indoors or outside. Do the distance all at once like a traditional event or break it into small goals a few times a week. The beauty of a virtual event is the flexibility. If you have ever been interested in completing a multisport event but have yet to race in an event the time is now!

Why Participate?

  • Exposes and educates anyone to the multisport lifestyle, all while being involved in a fun, exciting, and safe atmosphere! You can "Race Anywhere, Race Anytime!"
  • Creates an unique opportunity to challenge yourself or your friends and engage in the multisport lifestyle!

Where to Participate?

Wherever you can safely complete the disciplines, maintaining the recommended minimum of at least six feet of social distancing and abiding by all local, state and federal government mandates. Ride on the trainer or outdoors. Run on a treadmill, track or trail. As long as you can measure your time and distance via a smartwatch, GPS-enabled device or phone.

Can I Participate?

Absolutely! Whether you’re looking to do your first multisport event or have done hundreds, anyone can participate. New athletes are encouraged to participate in their first multisport event, while experienced athletes can test themselves against fellow athletes across the country. To be considered a finisher, you simply need to complete the required distances for the specific multisport event.

Equipment for Virtual

A GPS-enabled device, phone or smartwatch to record your workout is encouraged, but you do not have to have a tracking device. Basic swim, bike and run gear or access to a stationary bike, pool or treadmill is all you really need to participate in any virtual multisport eventVisit this page to learn more about event equipment.
