And now for something completely different and awesomely fun and the next event in our epic escape series over the weekend of 2nd / 3rd January 2021.
So, who doesn't like a good old-fashioned game of chase then? Phoenix Virtual Running is inviting you to the next event in our virtual escape challenge series.
The concept is simple enough - when you sign up you'll be randomly allocated 'Police Pursuit or Robbers on the Run' status with a Virtual BIB to match.
Then at midnight on Friday 1st January the challenge begins and you have 48 hours, to run, walk, crawl, roll, hop, and stumble as far as you can before the clock stops at midnight exactly 48 hours later on January 3rd. That's quite a way to dust off the New Years cobwebs. You can start anytime you like after the challenge clock starts ticking (you don't have to start at midnight) and run anytime, anywhere and as many times as you like within the 48 hour timeframe, and any single run of 1 mile or more can be logged. You do not have to run for 48 hours straight unless you really, really want to.
It's good old Cops n Robbers, husbands vs. wives, friends vs. friends, runner vs. runner...... every, single mile you run in the 48 hours counts towards either the Cops/Police total or the Robbers total..... There will be the usual 'Phoenix Landing' page on the website that keeps track of the team and individual totals, so we can literally see which team is leading the way.....
Will the Police Pursuers catch their prey or will the Robbers evade capture and escape with their swag.
Oh and the medal - well, of course, it will be epic! This time its half a pair of handcuffs, and depending on which team you're on and who clocks the most miles you could be wearing them!
And look out for our 'Prison Break' Escape Challenge which will be before this one on Nov 28/29, when you can earn the other half of the handcuffs and clip them together to make a set.
