The Hospitality 48hr Virtual Relay is a team event and means participants running or walking in 1 hour time slots one after each other with the aim for the team to cover the most miles and claim the coveted 1st prize!
Team members can use treadmills and/or an outside location to walk or run. For safety, we would only recommend using any outside destinations during the day – unless it is your garden! This is not a licensed event; This is designed to be a VIRTUAL, safe and inclusive event for your team to come together and have fun whilst raising awareness and funds for Only A Pavement Away.
This year, we will be using the Challenge Hound events platform which will enable you to record your miles and see how everyone is doing via a leaderboard. Recording your mileage can also be done through most fitness watches or phone apps such as Strava. We will help to onboard your teams to the platform.
The first runner or walker will set off on Friday noon, each runner or walker runs or walks for 1 hour, once the 1 hr is completed the next runner or walker starts. The last runner or walker completes their 1 hr slot on the Sunday 12 noon. You do not need to have someone running/walking at every time slot within the 48hrs, this is optional, but obviously, if you are in it to win it, the more slots filled will mean more mileage being covered!
If you don’t have enough people to each fill the 48 hr 1 hr slots i.e. you only have a team of 20, why not join up with other hospitality businesses in your area to create a larger team or get in touch with the Event Organiser (below) and they will help in pairing your team up with another team to create a larger team! BUT remember 1 person can run more than 1 slot over the 3 days ie Friday 12pm, Saturday 12pm and Sunday 11am.
With thanks to Milestone Recruitment who will be collating all the results and helping to do the admin.
