Keep yourself motivated
After the Swiss Alps 100 race in Switzerland had to be canceled due to COVID-19 I organized the virtual Swiss Alps event. That virtual event was held from May 16th to August 16th and 552 participants from 24 countries joined us.
After the successful virtual Swiss Alps event I didn't want it to end so I thought of a new virtual challenge. This new challenge is called the virtual Swiss Alps XXX and nothing like it can be found online anywhere else.

Swiss Alps 100
Tell me more about it!
When you join us, you will pick a level you are comfortable with. Each level starts easy but progressively gets harder as time goes on.
If you don't reach the required miles at the end of each month you won't be able to continue the challenge.
What is so special about this challenge?
This challenge is interesting because it's a virtual challenge which does not exists yet (as far as I know). This challenge also starts easy and is getting more intense as times goes on. So if you stick with it you will get stronger over time.
You also will be able to upgrade one level only if you want to do that. For example, if you're in level 2 for 2 months and you feel it's too easy you can move to the next level (level 3). You can upgrade only once and only until February 1, 2021. You will not be able to downgrade ever.
What do we get?
During the registration you can opt to get a beautiful finisher belt buckle once you finish the challenge on April 30, 2021. You might also get the vSwissAlpsXXX running hat.
How do I submit my results?
Once this challenge starts you can come to this website every time you want to submit a result. You will be able to log in and then submit your kilometers or miles you've covered.
