Designed to educate, empower and enable women and girls while unlocking some great fitness benefits for participants, the fantastic event gives all runners until July 15 to complete the course either by running outside in their favourite location, on a treadmill at home, or even in their regular gym or usual workout environment.

There are three tiers to choose from. The "Rare" package is priced at 2,000 baht and comes with a shirt, an entry number, an official medal, a certificate of completion, a drawstring bag, and a face mask with a pouch.

The "Common" package at 999 baht includes a shirt, an entry number, a medal, a certificate of completion and a drawstring bag; and the "Standard" package at 499 baht includes a shirt, an entry number, a medal, and a certificate of completion.

The first 1,000 people who register will have a chance to receive exclusive limited-edition event merchandise on top of their entry pack content.

The virtual run is held in partnership with Wirtual, an application dedicated to transforming its users' healthy habits into cryptocurrency by giving them rewards each time they workout. Users can then redeem these rewards in cryptocurrency-based features.

Proceeds from the charity run will be used to create ICT suites for two schools upcountry, providing students with access to the internet, and therefore boundless opportunities for securing fairly-paid work and additional education chances.
