Virtual races with medals have become increasingly popular in recent years, especially among runners looking to compete against others around the world without leaving home. The technology behind these races allows users to race virtually anywhere on earth, and even earn medals based on their performance.

Crush your fitness goals using virtual races with medals

1. Create a fitness goal.

Set a goal for your fitness activity. Start with something simple. If you’re just getting started, your goal may be consistency, like building up to walking or running 5 days per week.

If you’re already a runner, you may want to set a daily goal, like running five miles every day, or a goal to build up to, like running a marathon. If you want to try something new, you can turn the steps you get from your daily activity into fuel for your in-game character in The Outbreak™.

2. Set up a training plan.

You need to set up a training plan before starting any fitness program. This will help you reach your goal faster. It also helps you avoid injuries and burnout.

The Outbreak™ helps you do this by setting a minimum threshold for your daily activity in the form of The Horde. Don’t get enough steps in? The Horde can catch you and do health damage to your character.

3. Choose a medal design.

For many, one of the great benefits of running a virtual race is to receive a commemorative medal at the end. People looking for virtual races with medals often need to look no farther than the medal design to decide on their race.

4. Start virtual racing!

You can start by signing up for a race in The Outbreak™. The steps you take toward your target distance move your in-game character, where you’ll run from and do battle with zombies throughout each race mission. Best of all, you can still use your favorite running apps, like MapMyRun, Zombies, Run! and Strava, as all are complementary to The Outbreak™.
