Virtual Corporate Challenge Series

Raise money, morale and your company profile!


The COVID-19 pandemic has permanently altered the ways in which we all work, with many organisations experiencing a permanent shift towards a ‘hybrid office’– with a mixture of home and office-based working.

With team cohesion and relationship building now more important than ever, we’re delighted to launch the R4W Virtual Corporate Challenge Series, offering a number of virtual events for the corporate market throughout 2021.

The challenge invites organisations from across the UK to get involved in virtual running races from any indoor or outdoor location with events in January (Kick Start 10K), April (Easter 5K) and August (10K).

The events provide a charity fundraising, corporate social responsibility and team building opportunity at a time when traditional mass-participation events cannot take place. Team members can run together outdoors in person, or virtually from their own remote location and use the events as an opportunity to raise money, morale, or company profile!

There’s no limit to how many team members can take part, but you’ll need at least three team members to register.
