Lockdown or no lockdown
Can you complete 700k within a year or more?
Over a year (average of 2k a day) or less than that if you want..
Using live mapping to follow the path of the lightning bolt across Brazil
We have gone virtual, but in a super cool way...
Choose a real life virtual route (UK sights or the real path of the longest ever lightning bolt across southern Brazil) earn our medallion sized medal, optional technical finishers tee and link your fitness apps
Run, Cycle, Swim or Walk the length of the longest ever recorded single lightning bolt, 700 kilometres, between now and 2022. As sports events return to action in 2021 and into 2022, log both your training activities and the real life events all towards this ultimate challenge to give yourself a achievable fitness goal for the next year.
With an Insanely Cool Medal, optional High Quality Technical T-Shirt, Personalised Certificate and FREE Extensions if you need, we have plenty of rewards packed in to keep you motivated. Not only that but we have teamed up with My Virtual Mission to provide a choice of TWO live virtual scenic routes to choose from, the UK route, which takes you from the start at the Olympic Park through the Chiltern Hills, Covent Garden, Chinatown, Big Ben, the O2, London Bridge, Wembley, Richmond Park, Bushy Park, Box Hill, the South Downs, up to the Cotswolds before finishing at the Brecon Beacons. OR you can complete the actual path of the real life lightning bolt, as it was recorded, across southern Brazil.
As well as manually logging towards your accumulative distance you can connect your popular apps such as Strava or Fitbit to do this automatically - what are you waiting for?
It works out an average of 2k a day, and that's without our FREE extensions!
Long term goals
Each time you do an activity you will gain more distance towards your final goal, finally earning your high quality technical running t-shirt and our insanely cool super thick and big medal - probably the biggest you have ever got!
This is the ideal challenge to not only give yourself a year long fitness goal but to earn our medal whilst completing other real life sports events as they begin to return to action later in 2021. You can rack up your training miles and log the actual events you do!
You can complete your activities anywhere, anytime, anyplace as with any other virtual event but we prefer to call ourselves a challenge, we want people to come together as soon as it is safe to do so to complete this!
Get fit within a year
This challenges you to complete 700k, the distance recorded for the longest ever lightning bolt, which shot across the Brazilian sky back in 2018, over the course of a year. This is the equivalent distance between Washington D.C and Boston. You may use one or a combination of activities to achieve this total accumulative distance and we encourage you to use real life events, as they return to action, as a way to log longer distances.
