On the occasion of the Runningdays you can also run a marathon. A virtual marathon is a great achievement and may even be rated even higher than the result of a street marathon, in which the spectators and followers can also carry you emotionally. Therefore, run your marathon solo or in small groups and secure your certificate and your place in the results lists. You can also reward yourself with a finisher medal. More on that later.
A virtual marathon is also 42.195 kilometers long. Not 40, not 42, but at least 42.195 kilometers. The World Athletics Association set this distance in its regulations in 1921. If you run this distance on one day of the one-week Laufcampus Runningdays, you will be included in the marathon ranking of the Runningdays. You are responsible for maintaining the length of the route. Use a sports watch or a running app with GPS measurement. Both solutions are very reliable and are recognized by us. If it is a few meters more, this is of course not a problem. Even if your marathon has a few vertical meters, this of course does not make your performance worse. For the recognition of your performance, it is also irrelevant whether you choose a multi-lap course or a point-to-point route for your marathon, the main thing is that the route is 42.195 kilometers long and your time is calculated correctly.
It doesn't matter whether you run alone or in a group. Even if you perform on the occasion of a road marathon that takes place at the same time as the Runningdays, you can also include this in the marathon rating of the Runningdays. A starting place that you can acquire for the Runningdays is of course a prerequisite. The Runningdays also have the great advantage that they last seven days, from Monday to Sunday. You can therefore choose the day of the week that is best for you.
There are two effective solutions to provide you with sufficient fluids. Either you have a hydration pack with you, a 1.5 liter volume is recommended, or you run your virtual marathon on a short circular route that you have to run several times, during which you keep coming back at home or past your parked car. So you can take care of yourself in the best possible way. Circular courses between three and seven kilometers are recommended here.
If you have followers, over the entire distance or only over a few laps, this can provide distraction and additional motivation for your virtual marathon. And in contrast to road marathons, bike escorts are both possible and permitted. Ideally, your bike companion can also provide you with food and liquids and, if necessary, dates or bananas on the marathon route.
You can of course find the best marathon training plans at Laufcampus. Either in the inexpensive version as a PDF download or tailored to you after a potential analysis in the Laufcampus training plan app:
We offer a marathon once a quarter on the week-long Runningdays. With the purchase of a starting place you will receive a code with which you can register for the marathon. Immediately after your registration you will receive your start number by email and you can start running. Please note that you pay EUR 9.00 for a starting place and only EUR 39.90 for a starting place with a training plan in the Laufcampus app. Compared to a single booking of the starting place and training plan, you pay 8.10 euros less. Here you can find the starting places.
A marathon is worth all honors. So reward yourself with a medal that we will send you by post on the Tuesday after the Runningdays with no additional shipping fee. Click here for the finisher medals . Perhaps you will find a nice place for it on a wall and thus extend your joy about your marathon success.
You can find everything else in the invitation to run days . < / p>
We wish you good luck with your virtual marathon

Viele Firmenläufe – so auch die meisten B2Run Läufe – können 2021 Corona bedingt leider nicht stattfinden. Immer mehr Firmenlaufteams starten daher virtuell bei den Runningdays. Denn ganz ohne Firmenlauf muss auch 2021 nicht sein.
