Run New York Virtual
The 8 x 8 challenge can be completed in a team of 8 or on your own. You need to complete 3.275 miles (5.27km) every day for 8 days to complete this individually. In a team, you are splitting the burden amongst friends or work colleagues and the challenge to record an official time is to submit all of your times on the same day (we do accept times on different days for your medals but your times will be recorded as unofficial). By submitting your 8 x 3.275 miles (5.27 Km), you will amass your marathon distance and the runners portal will calculate your marathon time rewarding you with the Run New York Silver medal.
You can also split the distance up in one of the following ways:
- 26.1 miles as a individual
- 13.1 miles in a pair (13.1 Miles per person)
- 10.54 miles in a team of 4 (10.54 Km per person)
- 5.27Km in a team of 8 (5.27Km per person)
- 2.62 miles in a team of 10 (2.62miles per person)
- 1.048 miles in a team of 25 (1.048 miles per person)
14+ or 5 and over if accompanied by an adult
Official Times – To submit an official time you must use Garmin Connect, Strava, Map My Run, Nike App or any GPS tracking device. Take a picture of your tracker and submit via your online console.
Unofficial Times – You can submit evidence to us by simply keeping a daily log. At the end sign the log, take a photo and upload it to your Virtual Marathon Series online console. You will receive a medal and our congratulations but your time will only be recorded as an unofficial time.
