Under the slogan “Take Charge of Your Health”, AIA Vitality is organizing its first virtual run: the “AIA Vitality Virtual Run 2018”. A virtual run is a flexible running event that meets the needs of running enthusiasts and health lovers who prefer to schedule the running time, speed and location themselves. Runners can participate from any location, at any pace, on a treadmill or even in another country. There are two running distances to choose from - 5 km and 10.5 km, and the running period is from December 5-16, 2018.

Other than the benefits of staying active and healthy, virtual runners will also be taking part in a good cause by donating 100 baht to one of Oxfam’s projects that focuses on the alleviation of global poverty. The donation is already included in the 530 baht entry fee.

The results of your run must be recorded using a GPS app (Garmin Connect, Fitbit, Apple Health, S Health, Runkeeper, Strava, Endomondo, etc.), a health app (Garmin Connect, Fitbit, Apple Health, S Health, etc.) or by taking a photo or a screenshot of your race result from other running events that you will join during December 5-16, 2018. If you did the run on a treadmill, you can also take a photo of the result once completed for your registered distance.

Those who submit their results within December 16 will get a chance to win a Garmin VIVOFit 3, worth 2,590 baht. Ten watches are up for grabs. The 10 lucky winners will be announced no later than December 25, 2018.
