Get back on track with the ultimate virtual challenge
If you are lucky enough to be anywhere in Australia other than Melbourne right now, we sincerely hope you are making the most of your freedom to exercise outside. And if you live in Sydney, we have a great challenge for you.
Most of you may not realise that Western Sydney Parklands is actually 5,280 hectares of green open space- that's nearly 10,000 football fields!! And there are over 60km of tracks to explore.
The team from NAB RunWest have developed the Get Back on Track Challenge and it's the perfect time to get involved. Running from 1 – 30 August, you can choose from six challenges in Blacktown, Fairfield and Liverpool ranging from 1.6km – 6.7km in distance, with something for all fitness levels and abilities. Run or walk while exploring Sydney’s Biggest Backyard – the choice is yours!
What we love about this concept is the simplicity. No set time or apps to download - just go and run (or walk) to explore this great corner of Sydney. You can do the one course several times and try to set a personal best or you can upload your results to compare yourself to everyone else. Or you can pick a new track each time and keep exploring!
We’ve worked with the RunWest team to set up the registration process so that you can register for just one distance or as many as you want using our Series functionality. And then once you're registered you can head over to the results page (courtesy of the team at Tomato Timing) to upload your results and download your finishers certificate. And if you are worried about getting lost, never fear - once you are registered you will receive a confirmation email with details of how to download the GPX file (aka Map).
If you register for the paid event you could win some excellent prizes plus you’ll get a discount to enter the 2020 NAB RunWest event and you’ll get a Finishers Medal posted out to you.
We’ve been keeping an eye on lots of different “virtual” events and offerings in the market and we really like this idea of everyone running the same course, just not at the same time. It gives people a chance to compare themselves apples for apples against the rest - as opposed to someone finding a nice gentle downhill 5km to PB on. Or maybe you want to head out and see if you can beat your time from last week on the same course.
So don’t waste any time - sign up today!
