About Us

Race the World is a Virtual Challenge Series with a difference. We have chosen some famous world landmarks and challenge routes for you to take on for continued motivation to lace up those trainers, get on your bike and head over to the swimming pool.

We have some sports specific challenges, such as Swim Loch Ness, Climb Everest, Run/Walk to the Space Station and our loooonng distance challenges for those mileage monsters who want to push themselves further which can be completed using a combination of Run/Walk, Cycle and Swim. We don't care about pae and most of our challenges have no time limit in which to complete. The only person you are racing against is yourself. We all have different fitness goals, and you meeting those is what is important.

We also have our Annual Distance Challenges, which is where we really started when I set up the 1000 Mile challenge as part of my London Marathon Fund Raising.

You can submit your mileage to us on those long distance events for continued support and to keep you focussed on the challenge ahead. This personal touch is what we think sets us apart from other virtual challenge events.

 

How Does It Work

You pick your challenge and Enter clicking on the picture of the medal. This will take you to our shop pages where there will be more information on the challenge you are interested in including the 'rules', although we are pretty flexible as the best laid plans can easily be derailed.

So, I have entered, what happens next ?

We will send an email to you confirming receipt of your entry, welcoming you to Race the World and providing you details of the Strava club (if applicable to your challenge) and tracking sheets, again if applicable to your challenge.

What do I do when I have finished ?

When you have finished your challenge, you email your evidence to us here at submissions@racetheworld.co.uk and we will get your medal posted out to you.

How long will I have to wait for my medal ?

All medals are dispatched within 2 working days of receiving your evidence of completing the challenge.

What evidence do I need to provide ?

We accept all tracking apps, Garmin, Fitbit, Strava or any other preferred app. You can use steps or boots on evidence, it is entirely up to you how you complete the challenge. 

What if I don't use an electronic tracking app ?

That is fine, we are happy for you to send us a manual log of all those miles you have completed, so a screenshot of this would be perfectly acceptable.

Pricing

All Prices shown are inclusive of P & P of your medal and finishers certificate unless you are outside the UK and there will be a supplemental postage charge of £4.00

 

Prices will vary according to the size of the challenge

Our Charities

 From time to time we will be running special charity medals. With these all of the profits will go to the charity meaning we won't make a penny from the sales.

Our current charity event is the Christmas Advent Challenge. All of our profits will go to the Georgia Williams Trust, which was set up in memory of Georgia and supports young people in getting active by providing individual grants to allow them to pursue specific sporting activities, sports clubs to buy equipment and sporting projects within schools. They also provide support to these young people in being active within their community. We feel this charity is particularly apt given the motivation for Race the World.

Terms and Conditions

Annual Challenges - We are able to transfer you between the various challenges should you have stumbled upon injury/illness and have not been able to meet your target, or have under-estimated your awesomeness and have packed in more miles than you thought. This is strictly subject to availability of medals.
