VIRTUAL - RUN January VULTRA

Welcome to our RUN January VULTRA. It'll soon be 2021, New Years resolutions will be made and perhaps you need a running challenge to keep you motivated - then look no further than the RUN Jan VULTRA. This event has something for everyone; from those who are completely new to running and want to try something awesome to seasoned ultra runners. This is the opportunity to try running for consecutive days and any distance from 1 mile and up counts. Oh and there's a belt buckle and this one is rather special and will pave the way for an exciting new initiative we have in 2021.

Our RUN Jan VULTRA will be one of our 'Limited Edition' month long VULTRAS and will start on Monday 1st January at 12.00am (UK Time) - probably with what's fast becoming our customary 'midnight mile' (you don't have to start at midnight by the way). The event will then run for the 31 days of January and officially end on Sunday 31st The idea is to get you to run, walk or crawl at least 1 mile each and every day.

The exciting bit :

As with all our VULTRAS - you'll get a bespoke sequential BIB when you sign up. There will be a route map and central results and progress landing page on the 'VULTRA' Phoenix Running website, and each competitor will have their own virtual location pin (complete with their name and BIB number for tracking your virtual progress) and you can even have your profile picture appear. Once you start your virtual run you'll submit your mileage as you go, which, once approved, will automatically move you around the map.

But where are we virtually running this January?
Well (and this is very exciting) as a tribute to one of our best loved Thames Path routes, we're going to be running our section of the towpath between Hampton Court and Cowie Sale, taking in our 'blue bridge' route virtually. We've not been able to run our attended event on the 'blue bridge' route since Feb 2020 due to Covid-19 restrictions, so in January 2021 we'll be doing it in spirit with our RUN Jan VIRTUAL route.....

When you sign up you'll be asked to select from one of the following options; these are really just so you can set your own goals, and you won't be held to these - in reality you can run as little or as much as you like each day.

There are 6 jaunty January entry options;

  • 1 mile a day - just give me the damn buckle!
  • 2 miles a day - double trouble
  • 3.1 miles a day - well it's a 5k
  • 5 miles a day - it's nice round number
  • 6.2 miles a day - well it's a 10k
  • 10 miles or more each day
As you can see the 'RUN Jan VULTRA' has something for everyone and is designed to be a month long challenge where you set and achieved your goals. Oh, and if you're still reading this, then it's time to tell you that absolutely everyone who logs just one mile during the entire month gets the bling anyway. Yes, yes, so it's a month long challenge, and yes we do want you to run everyday - however the key to these things is having the courage to start in the first place, so if you start you get the bling! This will also ultimately form part of a larger 3 month challenge.

So let's stay motivated and run every day in January!
