This week we have selected a wide range of events to try ranging from group rides to badge hunts to races. We’ve also included some events specifically for women!
Z Badge Hunt – London PRL Full
The “PRL Full” is the longest route badge you can earn on Zwift. At 173.8km you pretty much need to block out half a day in your schedule if you want to achieve this! I have only ever done this route once… I did it solo, and it was a long ride. Would highly recommend undertaking this in a group, with doubledraft enabled. So these Badge Hunting events are perfect!
The “PRL Full” route consists of 11 laps around London, taking in Box Hill, with an elevation gain of 2290 meters.

Sub 7 Group Ride / Sub 8 Group Ride
The Pho3nix SUB7/SUB8 initiative, powered by Zwift, intends to break the 7 and 8-hour time barriers in long-distance triathlon (3.8 km/180 km/42.2 km) for men and women, respectively.
This series of events actually includes races, group runs, and running races. But we wanted to focus on the group rides happening Sunday. Note that there is no ride leader, so ride at your own pace, and unlock the kit at the finish.
These events are gender-specific.

Women’s Time Trial Racing Series p/b Herd Racing
This event caught my eye because it’s very rare to see a “Women’s Only” time trial.
This race takes place on the “Duchy Estate” route and is 16.1km in length. TTs require a totally different skillset to racing where apart from long mountain climbs, efforts are shorter and more dynamic. Personally speaking, I have found time trials an excellent way to improve my overall riding, I think in part because you push yourself to the limit and then maintain that effort and thus get the mental and physical benefits that come with undertaking sustained efforts at your limit.

Whens the next 100km in 2 hour attempt? Its beyond me, but interesting to see how long I can hang for.
Great question, after the last event I mentioned to the organisers that it would be good if they ran training sessions and built up to it and then had a proper attempt, instead of just doing it. But I haven’t heard more.
Any chance you can start to feature smaller clubs. There are lots of great weekend events but it’s usually only the big clubs or commercial sponsored events that get a look in from zwiftinsider.
