I’ve heard about virtual run since about 5 years ago. One of my client is an avid participant, collecting medals from all over the world. I wasn’t interested back then, because I thought I would lose the euphoria of running together at a regular running event.
Since COVID-19 pandemic, all regular running events have become virtual. Today I gave virtual run a shot as I participated in Pertamina Rosneft Virtual Run 10k category.
The event is well organized. Apart from virtual run, they organize virtual coaching and virtual flag off ceremony. The flag off ceremony is held today at 5.30 am. I missed the ceremony because I woke up late.
I started running at 6.24 am, following my current favorite 10k route from Gambir, Thamrin, Menteng, Cikini, and back go Gambir again.
