The Virtual SquadRace Series Germany

The SquadRace turns running into the ultimate team sport. It’s squad versus squad, racing in opposite directions on a 5k course. And in this race, it’s not about the fastest individual. It’s the team with the fastest overall average time who wins. Pull each other over the line as you push for the finish. In this race, every runner counts.

However, 2020 has been no ordinary year, so we’ve had to adapt. We created a platform to keep the SquadRace energy alive, virtually. It’s still squad against squad, competing against one another – all together and yet running alone. 

           

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. 

 

We’re in search of the fastest running squad in Germany. We’ll start by going west, heading north, veering east and finishing south. Become the fastest squad in your region and qualify for the On SquadRace Final! Are you ready?

The Series:


The fastest running crews of the four regions qualify for the On SquadRace 2020 Final, which will take place as a real competition in Berlin. The four participating winning teams will be invited to the final. Transfer and accommodation costs for one night will be paid by us.



The team size at the final may not exceed 20 people per squad. If more runners per squad have participated in the qualifying race, the 20 race entries for the final will be selected by team members.



At the final, two 5k races must be run. The two semi-final races will be drawn by lot and will be held in knockout mode on the morning of the event day. In the final, the two winning teams will compete against one another in the evening of the event day. But before that, there'll be a race for third place.



The final date will be communicated in agreement with the four winning teams of the regions. The event will be broadcast live on this site. We would like to point out that the finals can only take place as a real event if we can carry it out responsibly. We reserve the right to assess the general situation and the related implementation or non-implementation of the event. A virtual final will be the alternative to the real event.
