The California Virtual Running Experience is a virtual event series brought to you by realbuzz Running Adventures. Take a virtual tour of California with a choice of a 5k, 10k Half Marathon, Marathon or 100 Mile Challenge, multiple routes for you to choose from. We have also launched the Bear Mile Family Challenge, specifically aimed at kids.
Become a Californian Explorer!
You can choose from the Bear Mile (aimed specifically at kids), Poppy 5k, the West Coast 10k, the Gold Rush Half Marathon, the Endless Summer Marathon or the Redwood 100 Mile Challenge.
There is also the Brain Research UK 50 Mile California Challenge, an exclusive event to support our partner charity.
Don't worry, all of events can be run over multiple days, so you don't have to do them in a single day.
There are a number of fascinating routes that you can pick, from L.A. and San Francisco to Yosemite National Park and many in between. You'll be able to unlock bonus destination content as you upload your evidence on your chosen route (available on 10k distance and above).
Every event package also comes with a range of digital goodies, like downloadable race numbers, certificates and selfie frames. There is also a detailed festival section where you can find out everything you need to know about this beautiful state.
And it doesn't end there! We have a team of expert coaches on hand to guide you on your adventure. Simply contact them via the Training Support zone to get personalised training support. All FREE of charge and included with each entry.
