Zwift has announced the “Holiday Run” event, scheduled for 6:30AM PST on Christmas Eve.
The event is headlined by two special guests: Mo Farah and Eric Min.
Sir Mo’s is a name widely known in the running world. A Gold Medalist in 2012 and 2016, Mo Farah is the most successful British track athlete in modern Olympic history. To be clear: Mo is a double-double gold medalist, as he won gold in the 5,000m and 10,000m events at both the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. Amazing!
Eric Min’s name, of course, is known in the Zwift world since he’s the CEO and most-known face of Zwift. We’ve noticed Eric has been putting in some run training lately, doing some 5k runs. Think he can keep up with Mo? 😊
This event is being held on Watopia’s 5K Loop route.
This run is not a race, and it will be pretty spread out (as runs tend to do). So join at whatever fitness level you’d like and enjoy being a part of what may very well be the biggest group run ever hosted on Zwift. (Initial predictions were saying 500 runners, but 440+ are already signed up!)
