The Greatest Virtual Run aims to be the largest virtual run in the world while raising funds for Running on the Spectrum. You can complete the event wherever you are - with friends, family or solo - from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th July 2020.
You can chose to walk, run or cycle over one of the following distances:
- 21.1km (half marathon);
- 42.2km (marathon);
- 150km; or
You can complete the distances in one run, or the two longest distances (150 and 300km) can be completed cumulatively over a month.
You will receive a running bib to print and wear on your run, as well as a Finisher’s Medal - just like a regular race. There will also be spot prizes too - just like a real fun run!

All proceeds from the event will go to Running on the Spectrum which aims to provide Australian and New Zealand children with Autism the opportunity to join a supportive and understanding running programme. All children in the programme receive a tailored fitness program, access to online support and a new pair of running shoes. Running provides an amazing outlet for those on the Spectrum, as it provides focus, achievement and helps reduce anxiety.
