Race The Machine Virtual Series

20 Jun 2021 - 01 Aug 2021

Organiser's Description

Race the Machine is a virtual race with a twist!

We provide runners and beginners with targets for seven different race distances, from 1500 Metres to a Half Marathon. In another break from the standard virtual race format there is no medal for completing the race. Runners who complete 4 distances (win or lose) receive a red Race The Machine Buff in the post. Those who complete all 7 distances earn a rarer black Race The Machine buff.

If you beat ‘The Machine’ by a wide margin things will get a little harder in your next race as we want to see you progress. Beat your time narrowly and the difficulty level will stay roughly the same. If you lose to ‘The Machine’ things will get easier next time. The time we give you is based on your ability level so that you can progress through the series and find it rewarding.” 

Step 1

Enter a race and you will be given an achievable time to try and beat. This will be calculated from your previous Race The Machine time or your estimated 5K time if this is your first race. You can choose to add a quality Race The Machine technical running t-shirt to your order.

Step 2

You have until the last day of the next month to run your race and upload your evidence here: https://racethemachine.co.uk/submit-evidence/ 

Win, lose or draw your result will be added to our results tables https://racethemachine.co.uk/results/ 

Step 3

Complete 4 races and you will receive a red Race The Machine buff in the post!

Step 4

Complete all 7 distances to join the exclusive “Machine Accomplished” club and receive a black Machine Accomplished buff in the post.

Remember, your time to beat is based on your potential with suitable training. Find out more here: https://racethemachine.co.uk/about/
