Our Virtual Runs

These are as virtual as they can be! You can run these wherever, so don’t expect any Turn-by-turns. But prepare your self for fun! All the courses take you virtually to the deep forest of Espoo, and if you choose the Espoo Forest Half below, you can hear the crowds cheering you in the forest! And wolves. And bears. Also many little objectives included too in the run.

ESPOO VIRTUAL FOREST HALF

No matter where you run, we’ll take you to the Espoo Forest Half course. Works well as a preparation for the actual race. Funny objectives placed along the course!

21,1 km

LETS GO!

ESPOO VIRTUAL FOREST 10K

Enjoy your usual 10K run now with a humorous murder mystery, happening along the course, in Espoo Forest. Can you guess the murderer or are you the next victmim? That remains to be seen. Or actually heard. Or actually read from the tomorrow’s newspaper.

10 km

LETS GO!

ESPOO VIRTUAL FOREST 8K

This historical 8K takes you to the Espoo Forest and we will dig down into the surroundings’ history. Nothing but dull moments: has that stone always been there, or maybe somebody brought it there? What is being built into the forest next, which ruins everything etc. Its just that why run 8K if there is 10K available. No explanataions given, never come back, take the 10K next time.

8km

LETS GO!

Easy Beasy 5K

Run a 5K with our professional hosts! We will keep you going on and entertained. Since we are virtually in the Espoo Forest, and actually we are just too escapees from the prison far far away, it is possible that we will just vanish in to the woods. But let’s at least start together, mmkay?

8km

LETS GO!

You can add all these to your app, by entering the Route Code ESPOOFH in the Race Peps app. The list automatically updates, when new routes are added OR the current ones modified. Easy!
