Will the White Tree of the King blossom once again? Witness as the rightful King of Gondor is crowned and a new age of peace begins in Middle-earth.
Gondor Virtual Challenge takes you on Aragorn's journey through the heart of the battle of Minas Tirith and towards the Black Gate for Man’s last stand against Sauron.
This challenge offers two routes: 70mi /112km (recommended for running and walking) and 662mi /1065km (recommended for cycling).
Each time you complete a distance-based exercise such as running, walking, cycling, swimming, etc., you advance along the map of Middle-earth.
Complete your fitness journey with Gondor Virtual Challenge today and earn a stunning medal!
Celebrate your achievement with a stunning medal worthy of the next King of Gondor.
Emblems of Gondor mark this medal with beauty and nobility: the White Tree upon King Elessar's Crown and the Seven stars that are set upon Gondorian banners and armor.
The last medal of the Return of the King Series gets mailed to you once you have completed the challenge.
Legends say that only the truly worthy may see the journey through to its end! Complete all three challenges in sequential order and get a medal for each!
The Return of the King is a standalone series — you can get started even if you haven’t completed any other THE LORD OF THE RINGS Challenges yet.
As you progress through the challenge, you'll unlock Postcards, Stories and Local Spots when you reach certain milestones.
The Stories are inspired by the narrative of the film trilogy with handpicked images and captions that add rich contextual information.
Each Postcard comes with challenge-specific artwork designs and exciting information highlighting key locations.
To make the story that much more immersive, we designed the Middle-earth map from scratch based on THE LORD OF THE RINGS film trilogy.
Every time you add a workout, you advance on your way to Mordor.
Watching your virtual avatar move from one side of the world to another will make your fitness progress that much more tangible.
You can track all your miles (or kilometers) across Middle-earth directly in our mobile iOS and Android apps.
You can enter an activity into the app manually by entering its distance or by syncing your activities from your favorite fitness tracker or smartwatch.
