Join the blooloop #VExpoRun, raising money for the SEA LIFE Trust. blooloop V-Expo is an online conference and exhibition for the global visitor attractions industry.

Taking part in the virtual run is easy - simply sign up, record your run with an app like Strava, and upload it between the 9-12 October.

Upload a picture of yourself at your personal finish line, and congratulate the other runners in the virtual finish line. Share online using the hashtag #VExpoRun.

The SEA LIFE Trust is a registered charity dedicated to protecting our oceans and amazing marine life through our marine animal sanctuaries, conservation projects and campaigns. The SEA LIFE Trust has two marine animal sanctuaries; our Cornish Seal Sanctuary in the UK which rescues and cares for seal pups in need of help so that they can return home to the ocean, and our world-first Beluga Whale Sanctuary in Iceland which provides a new more natural home in a sea sanctuary for previously captive beluga whales. The SEA LIFE TRUST Beluga Whale Sanctuary’s first residents are two female beluga whales called Little Grey and Little White.

The top three male and female runners as well as the total amount raised for the SEA LIFE Trust, will be announced during Blooloop's V-Expo, so come and join us. There is also a special category for those running with dogs (or other pets).

90% of all funds go to the SEA LIFE Trust, with 10% covering the cost of the virtual run platform.

SEA LIFE Trust is a charity registered in England & Wales (1175859).

How to complete a Virtual Event

Participating in a virtual event means you can complete the distance at any time within the event timeframe in a location of your choice.
Here's what you need to do:


Preparing your virtual event

  • Secure your virtual spot in the event by booking your ticket
  • Plan your ideal route
    Make sure the route is at least the event length and as traffic free as possible
  • Download a distance tracking app
  • Ensure your phone and/or GPS watch is fully charged

During your event

  • Record your activity on a tracker and take a screenshot
    This can be either a phone or a GPS watch.
  • Complete your activity in the designated event completion timeframe
  • Make sure you go the event distance
    But don't worry if you go a bit further, we'll calculate your finish time.
  • Take a Finisher's Photo to share with your fellow finishers

Submitting your result

  • Head back to this event page to submit your results
    Make sure to submit your results within the event completion timeframe
  • Upload a screenshot of your activity tracker or GPS watch to verify your results
    You can still participate and submit results without this, but we won't be able to verify your results.
  • Provide your finish time and overall distance
    If you go further than the race distance, we'll adjust your time down to the correct distance based on your pace.
  • Share your Finisher's Photo on the Finish Line gallery
    Get featured on our Finish Line where you can celebrate your achievement and inspire others to get active.

Frequently asked questions

How do I record my activity?
To record your activity, you will need to download an activity tracking app that is able to track your distance and time. Popular apps include Strava, Nike Run Club, MapMyRun, and RunKeeper, and are available in the app store for free on your phone. For more details on our favourite tracking apps check out our blog post.
Are there time cutoffs for Virtual Events?
Virtual Events are fantastic in that they can be completed at any pace and location. The only restriction on how long you take is the event submission window, which is generally 48 hours, giving you lots of time to complete your event.
Can I go further than the race distance?
Yes, you can complete a distance further than what the event requires. All you need to do is input distance travelled and time, and we will adjust it down to the time it took to complete the event distance.
Can I take a break during my activity or do I have to do it without stopping?
In order to make the virtual experience as close to a physical event as possible, please submit your total elapsed time that it took to complete your chosen distance rather than total moving time. This will take into account any breaks or stops taken during completion, and mimic the experience of a physical event.
If offered, when will the post-race goodies be mailed?
Any race goodies or merchandise will be posted by the Event Organiser as soon as possible after the event. Please contact the Event Organiser if you have further enquiries about race swag.
Can I take part at any time of day?
You will find the event start time on the event page. Once the event starts, you can complete the event any time within the submission window. Make sure to upload your result and picture within the submission window to verify your results!
