The Imperial Virtual Varsity 2021

Welcome to Virtual Varsity 2021. 

We can't be together yet, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to play for.

Virtual Varsity is a distance challenge (running or walking), with clubs from Imperial College and Imperial Medics going against eachother to cover the most miles on Strava. Between 19 - 21 March, we'll be highlighting on our Instagram channels how each team is getting on and which clubs are ahead on the leaderboard!

How to get involved

Main challenge: distance

If you're in a club, your task is simple: cover the most distance you can between 19-21 March. Each day we total your distance and, if your club beats your opponent, you get points.

Track your distances on your Strava channels, and the winner will be announced on Monday 22 March!

Bonus challenges

Not in a club but still want to get involved? Our bonus challenges are open to everyone, with the best submission winning £30 JustEat vouchers! 

  1. Cycling for distance
  2. Most inventive route
  3. Longest held plank
  4. Best outfit

Tag us (@imperialathletes)  in your Instagram story with a picture or video of you completing the challenge.

Community Strava group

Fancy running the distance but not part of a club?
