About MyRace Virtual Racing.


Modern life is busy and we can’t always do everything that we want to, due to family, work or social commitments. Unfortunately this can include keeping fit and accomplishing the personal goals which can be a part of any fitness regime.

Therefore, MyRace has developed a series of virtual events which can be completed at any location or time that suits you, day or night! Maybe you are a busy parent who has no free time on a weekend, perhaps you have a work schedule which means you can’t guarantee when you are free, or maybe you want to build up the confidence to complete a local event…

With each virtual event we also donate money to specially chosen charities, so you can support worthwhile causes whilst keeping fit and collecting epic medals!

Whatever your reason for taking part in virtual racing, MyRace offers a variety of events, charities, goody bags and a high quality bespoke medal for each event as a memento of your achievement!

The MyRace team

Medal Hound

Andy is a qualified UK Athletics running coach and is part of the coaching team at his local running club. He loves running, especially with his canine running companion Harrison, a Hungarian Vizsla, who spends most of his time being distracted by rabbits and squirrels. Andy has completed many marathons including London, Brighton, Paris & Berlin and is hopeful of getting to sample many more around Europe and the World in the future. Andy is happiest when running off road on the many trails and hills in the surrounding area and is a self-confessed “medal freak”, only entering a race if a medal is available (the only exception being The Grizzly!).

Injury Prone

Tom has been running regularly for over 12 years, starting out shuffling around his local parks in London as a way of dealing with the stresses of running his own business. Tom has completed a few marathons (Brighton, Paris, Stockholm, London & Barcelona) and numerous half marathons and 10ks but, with a young family and injury prone legs, Tom finds it hard to maintain a high intensity of training so is having to select his races carefully!

Pack Leader

Harrison (Harry/Haz/H) is a Hungarian Vizsla who loves to do three things: run around a lot, chase a ball and go swimming. He often joins Andy and Tom on their medium to shorter runs and usually covers a lot more ground by following his nose and chasing squirrels. If running near a lake, pond or river in the summer, he always stops for a quick swim which is a handy way to clean him if he is covered in mud. Harrison sometimes joins Andy on a Parkrun, but would always prefer to be off the lead running through the forest without a care in the world! Tuna is Harrison’s food of choice (he would sell his soul for a tin), but he would honestly rather eat any meat or dairy based product than the food in his own bowl.
