Signing up to your preferred Virtual Challenge

For starters, browsing the site and choosing the route you will complete can be overwhelming. Currently, The Conqueror Challenges has 10 adventure series to choose from, ranging from short (less than 70 miles) to extra long distances.

And for beginners, exploring the rhythm on a fitness journey is important. The English Channel, the Inca Trail where you can see the breathtaking Machu Picchu and Hadrian’s Wall are good routes to start with for young bloods in the fitness world.

Meanwhile, fitness enthusiasts can go further by trying extra long tracks including the Alps to Ocean, Camino de Santiago, Grand Canyon, and the toughest Route 66 virtual challenges.

After deciding which challenge perfectly suits you, you may now proceed to the next step which is choosing your preferred virtual challenge package.
It comes with two options: the entry package with a medal or the entry package with a medal and apparel. You will be able to receive the apparel first, while the medal will be shipped after you finish the challenge.

Do you prefer going solo or do you want to have a team to help you with the challenge? Whether you are more of a solo or a team person, you have the total freedom to choose which option you prefer.
When choosing the path of having team members, it is easier to finish the track by having someone on your side as each member’s posted distance will help advance up the map. If tapping a team, note that each team member is required to purchase their own entry.

After you sign up, an email will be sent to your registered email address containing the code that you can use to enter. You can officially join in two ways: via app, Android or iPhone, or via website. Whichever, both are user-friendly, you wouldn’t get lost!

It is also good to remember that you can only begin a challenge after receiving the code. You may join and start immediately or it can be the next day.
And if you feel a little bit more generous, you may also give your code to a friend or a lover.

 

Set your chosen timeframe

Once the route is established, you may now set the timeframe based on your goals or schedule.
You are free to choose your start date and the weeks or months you aim to complete it. It can go over from one week up to 18 months, depending on your preference. The power is in your hands if you wish to extend or shorten it!

Note: Up for a more challenge? Push yourself a little more by trying to cross the line and finishing the goal earlier than what you set. *wink*

Get active: Run, walk, cycle or …

This is the moment you’ve been waiting for– the beginning of the real challenge! It is now the time to start running, walking, cycling, swimming or any of your preferred distance-based activities.

So you might be wondering what are “distance-based” exercises? This could be running, walking, cycling, and rowing. Any activity that is based on distance can be counted.

But how about non-distance based exercises? Good news is that it is also acceptable! Other forms of activities or sports like baseball, basketball, boxing, yoga, crossfit, soccer and softball can also be translated into distance.

We have a handy conversion chart that converts the time of doing these activities to the equivalent distance.

Record your progress:

Your progress and your achievement matter to us. We may not be with you physically to track your distance, but our user-friendly app is widely available on smartphones or on desktops, whichever platform is suitable for you.

This is how you can log your distance so we can check your progress.

  1.   You can enter your “distance of the day” manually via web or through our My Virtual Missions app. This is free to download in the App Store or in Google Play.
  2.   My Virtual Challenges also supports the following fitness tracker so you can track your distance automatically and with ease: Apple Watch, Apple Health, Google Fit, Fitbit, Strava, Map My Run, Map My Ride, Map My Walk, and Runkeeper.

 

If you’re a fit buff and if you feel a bit more adventurous, you can actually log and add other distance-based exercise to your existing challenge. In this way, it is easier and faster for you to reach the end of your The Conqueror Challenges goal.

You can also enter into as many challenges as you want, and log your distance to each challenge. For example, your cycling distance can be allocated to your Grand Canyon track, while your swimming distance can be counted on your English Channel challenge.

 

Unlock your Treasures:

Congratulations on completing the quest! Finishing the challenge gives you that heart-racing excitement and that adrenaline rush. Celebrate your achievement with a finisher’s medal!

We can’t wait for you to showcase your finisher’s medal! All we need is your complete home address where we can ship it immediately. Just like the apparel, it usually takes one to four weeks for you to receive it. The approximate time of delivery depends on the country you are living in.

Our team, on the other hand, will also email your certificate of completion via your registered address. We will also send you a virtual postcard as an add-on!

As this experience is one for the books, the medal also serves as a great reminder of how you persevered and how you pushed yourself above boundaries. Undeniably, the medal is also a marker of your gain after the pain.

Whether you are a beginner or a long-time fitness enthusiast, you always have a home with The Conqueror Challenges. Travel the world while achieving your fitness goals all at once. What are you waiting for?
