Rules

All athletes participate at their own risk and agree to run as safely as possible and strictly adhere to all Government regulations and traffic rules.

Keep Your Distance: All racing MUST comply to current physical distancing regulations.

Use Your Feet: Yes, standard running race rules apply. No scooters, no bikes, no roller blades, no magic moving boots. Just you, a watch and your running shoes. All podium position times will be subject to GPS file analysis.

Courses: To win or podium in a National Virtual Champs it MUST be run on an out-and-back or looped course (video GPS route verification will be required). Runs completed on a treadmill or point-to-point course will not be eligible for the National Virtual Champs, however, we will accept entries from any courses for participation points.

Running Track: You can use a measured path or athletics track, but do not do so if against current Government regulations and keep in mind that stopwatch times will only qualify for the National Virtual 1K Champs podium places if you provide video proof—so ideally also use a GPS. Note: GPS times on a track will be analysed for accuracy.

Terrain: Courses should have a net drop of no greater than 5 metres per kilometre.

Safety: PLEASE run on a safe pathway where you will avoid traffic and always give way to any traffic and other pedestrians (allowing 2-metre gaps).

Parents: We ask that all under 16s to be accompanied by an adult from their household on the run (the support person could be on a bike).

Sharing GPS Devices: You are welcome to borrow a family member’s device and Strava account to record your run (we encourage under 16s to use their parent’s accounts), however please acknowledge in the results both the name of the runner and the Strava account holder.

Treadmills: You can run on a treadmill however treadmill results will not be eligible for National Virtual Champs titles or podiums.

Overseas Entrants: We welcome runners based overseas to take part, however, we are unable to ship prizes internationally. International entrants based overseas are still eligible for podium positions.
