Hogwarts Virtual Run returns this June with exclusive Harry Potter merchandise
If running’s not your thing, you can walk and hike too.
Potterheads, it’s time to get your (magical) blood pumping.
The Hogwarts Virtual Run is coming to Singapore from June to July, with a range of limited edition merchandise as rewards for running a targeted distance.
This year, the virtual run is split into four series based on the Hogwarts Houses – Slytherin, Gryffindor, Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw in that order.
Each series has a separate window for participation, after which participants can collect rewards for finishing the series.
To qualify for the rewards, participants need to complete a targeted distance of 3km in one go.
This is not limited to just running. Walking, hiking, and jumping are all allowed and can be done both indoors and outdoors. The only requirements are a GPS-tracking running app and a time limit of one hour.
Participants are then required to submit proof that they have completed the targeted distance and a Finisher Medal will be sent to their doorstep.
Multiple registration packages are available, with different prices corresponding to the desired rewards.
The basic Medal package ($43) only includes the Finisher Medal. The Combo Set package ($55) includes a Finisher Medal, a Finisher Tee and a Marauder’s Map. Lastly, the Premium Collection package ($177) includes a Marauder’s Map, a Classic Notebook, a Big Medal, an e-certificate and all four designs of the Finisher Medal and Finisher Tee.
The first 500 participants who sign up for the Premium Collection package will also receive an award plaque, in which the four Finisher Medals can be installed and displayed.
While there are rewards exclusive to each series, participants can choose to register for multiple series to redeem merchandise from any Hogwarts House they want. Premium Collection participants have to participate in all four series by completing a targeted distance of 12km.
Interested participants can find out more and register here by May 31. The participation windows for each series are shown below.
