Virtual Race - Inca Trail

The Inca Trail is a world famous high altitude trail through Peru, starting at what is known as Kilometre 82 and culminating 25 miles later at Machu Pichu – The Lost City of the Incas. Famous for gold and the stone cities they built, the Incas were an ancient civilisation who existed in the 15th and 16th centuries – the Inca Trail traces their footsteps through the high peaks of the Andes Mountains.

We have taken inspiration from the Inca gold, stone and the Inca cross to create the amazing medal for our latest event – The Inca Trail. So if you would like to get your hands on one of these Inca treasures, run or walk 25 miles. You can complete the distance in one or as many efforts as you choose. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do it at high altitude… but if you do we’d recommend getting a group of Porters to carry you!

How it works:

1) Sign up to your race by clicking here
2) Complete your run
3) Upload your evidence to Virtual@runforcharity.com on completion
4) Put your feet up
5) Wait for the postman to drop off your medal!
