Dallas, Texas – March 19, 2020 – VirtualSportsRacing.com, an innovative digital platform for virtual sports challenges, events and races, today announced the availability of its industry-leading platform and pricing for all event organizers and race directors looking to host virtual endurance, multisport and gym events for their participants.
The platform’s industry-leading features and pricing is ideally suited for event organizers exploring virtual race alternatives due to event cancellations arising from COVID-19 as well as those looking to add unique virtual events to their existing portfolio.
Born digital and born virtual, the platform’s focus is exclusively on virtual running, cycling and swimming, all forms of endurance events such as virtual triathlon, as well as gym-based activities such as elliptical, rowing and stairclimbing.
According to Russ Jones, Brand Ambassador, VirtualSportsRacing, and one of the pioneers of the sport of triathlon, “VirtualSportsRacing is a fun way to be competitive without paying a high entry fee and being on the starting line. One can sign up for many different events, be on an age group leaderboard and do the event at any time or day of the week and anywhere with little or no stress.”
Branded public or private races, events and challenges can be set up within minutes and the platform provides event organizers with cutting-edge, end-to-end functionality from registration to results.
Innovative features include holistic support for all devices, equipment and platforms, detailed split times and age group rankings, seamless integration, powerful social media and unique customization to further differentiate events.
According to Benjamin Drezek, Founder, KMF Performance Multisport Coaching and USA Triathlon National Coach of the Year, “The VirtualSportsRacing online platform has been a perfect solution for us. With it, we were able to have a real-time detailed Leaderboard with Age Group categories, numerous split times, and overall results all in one space. Having this platform available to us in the future will be a game changer in how often we are able to organize events, as well as how smoothly and easily the events will be to participate in.”
Some of the current races on the VirtualSportsRacing platform include the Thinkers360 #TechForGood Virtual 5K Challenge running throughout March as well as many new races and planned “world-first” events launching in April.

VirtualSportsRacing was founded by a team of experienced athletes and tech professionals including a U.S. national champion and one of the pioneers of the sport of triathlon. We know nothing beats the experience of race day and saw an opportunity to open up and extend the participant journey to incorporate virtual race experiences which can be completed anytime, anywhere.
By working in close conjunction with event organizers, brands and causes, our goal is to promote an ongoing, healthy lifestyle for all participants while helping these organizations fuel their member-driven and purpose-driven objectives.
