Our Virtual Love Run is a virtual run with a difference, and who knows you may find love! When you enter, you will join one of 3 teams which are:
- Team In Love: For runners who are already loved up
- Team Single: If you are a runner looking for love then join Team Single
- Team It's Complicated: The team of the mysterious
We will keep track of each Team's Performance based more on the average miles rather than total miles as it's unlikely all teams will have a similar mix of runners!
As well as being part of a team, you will also be able to see how far you have gone around the Virtual Love Map. After leaving Durham City, you will head past Sacriston, Stanley, Consett, before heading cross country and along Weardale and then into Darlington. After Darlington, which is the bottom of the heart and the half way point, you then head back up the map, past Peterlee, Seaham and into Sunderland, before returning to Durham City. Watch out for our Lover's Checkpoints too - who will you want to reach Canoodling Corner with?
You do not have to complete one lap to be a finisher, any run during February and you will qualify as a finisher and you will receive our fantastic Love Run medal and awesome goody bag. However, if you manage an average of 3.6 miles per day throughout February, you will complete the full course and you will also receive our fantastic 100 mile love pin, so why not do a Run Every Day February and earn yourself some great bling?
Once you have completed a lap, you can just keep on running and continue going round the Love Map looking for love as many times as you want. Just remember, if you do find love on the run and there is a future wedding - we want an invite!
