The virtual On SquadRace

Oh Tug-O-Run, where have you gone? You may have heard rumors that the Tug-O-Run is no more, but we're here to set the record straight – make room for the On SquadRace. Same concept, more energy.

 

The SquadRace turns running into a team sport. Squad versus squad, racing in opposite directions over 5k. And this time, it’s not about the fastest individual. This time, it’s the team with the fastest average who wins. Pull each other over the line as you push for the finish.
 

In this race, every runner counts.

 

This year has brought many changes and we had to adapt the original events calendar. So, we created the first ever Virtual On SquadRace in Germany to keep you active from a safe distance. We asked for your feedback and the votes are in – the Virtual SquadRace will become a global series!

           

The race is virtual, but the competition is real. It’s still squad against squad, competing against one another – all together and yet alone. In challenging times when we miss our team, it’s a common sport that connects us most. Get ready to virtually reunite your squad and individually run your best 5k. 

 

       

To make waiting for the next in-person events a little easier, we created a platform to keep the SquadRace on track: the first ever virtual SquadRace took place in Germany!

     

The race is virtual, but the competition is real. It’s still squad against squad, competing against one another – all together and yet alone. In challenging times when we miss our team, it’s a common sport that connects us most, and we wanted to bring you back together to run your hearts out on a virtual level.  

 

The first virtual On SquadRace has come to an end. 

 

Thank you for your incredible response and participation. We would like to congratulate all squads and runners on their race times.
