With COVID-19 taking the fun out of fun runs, virtual runs are quickly becoming the new trend for avid runners to stay motivated. For anime lovers and Gunpla collectors, there are even more reasons to bust out the running shoes, as GUNDAM RUN is set to blast off this winter from living rooms, fitness clubs, and jogging trails everywhere!
Fans are treated to two different courses: the 20KM Zaku Run and the 40KM Gundam Run, where race finishers will receive a whole slew of items such as race bibs, runners tees, certificates, and medals designed by renowned mecha designer Kunio Okawara!
Marathoners who opt for the longer and more gruelling 40KM Gundam Run will also receive an exclusive race finisher’s cap!
Joining is simple! Simply purchase a race pack via gundamrunofficial.com, record your run via your preferred fitness app (check with the site for compatibility), upload your results, and wait for your race finisher’s entitlements to arrive.
Early bird runners who sign up on or before 30th September will also enjoy a free Gundam face mask on top of their entitlements!
If you’re like Char Aznable and can run three times faster, you can also make it to first lap time submission cut-off by 15th November 2020 to receive your race entitlements sooner than everyone else.
The next cut-off is on 15th December 2020, and the final cut-off is on 15th January 2021. It’s all pretty straightforward, but the difficult part is actually going the distance and earning that medal, so don’t hesitate — blast off to gundamrunofficial.com now!
