In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic took the communal running experience from us, but runners never give up. So we asked ourselves:
"How can we give people the excitement of finishing a run together, while being phisically apart?"
And so we launched VirtualRunners. We are working day and night with a lot of passion and are dedicated to give you the best running experience possible . Our goal is to bring freedom through running to every person in the world and bring people together, virtually.
It does not matter if you are a beginner or finished already multiple marathons, everyone is welcome here. We are more than a community, we are your
The basic thought is to bring moments of joy to our community. That feeling of achieving something you deemed impossible for you, no matter what level you're at. But most important to us are appreciation and respect for each other, towards our community and in the team.
Acknowleding the strengths and weaknesses of every team member is a vital part of us, everyone should be able to bring in their strengths in the best way possible. We at VirtualRunners believe in flat hierarchies and ever-changing structures, always combined with a lot of fun. We are a typical runners' company, we just start doing.
