UA HOVR Run the World Series Begins Monday

UA HOVR Run the World Series Begins Monday

With an increasing number of quality running events launching on Zwift, I’ve purchased a Zwift Run Pod so I can participate. What better place to test it out than the Under Armour HOVR Series!

What is the Under Armour HOVR Series?

It’s a 5K running challenge where the purpose is to run a 5K in five different Zwift worlds: New York City, Paris, Richmond, London, and Innsbruck.

About the Under Armour HOVR

Under Armour HOVR is the next generation cushioning platform, built to make you better. It is engineered to provide the ideal combination of cushioning and energy return.  It is the brand’s latest innovation in footwear cushioning technology.

Are these group runs?

Yes, but they are not being held at a particular pace. Under Armour ambassadors will be leading select events.

Problem with these events is you never know if it actually registered as completed once you’ve done it. Once in a while I get a email saying I completed a event, but not always. I got a email after completing Stage1, but not for Stage 2. How does one find out if it actually registered with Zwift as completed? I also did the TRUE TREADMILL EVENT SERIES and never got confirmation that I was entered into any drawing.

Here to basically say the same, I didn’t get the unlocked shirt / kit after the event, and just noticed no email yet either.

Event times are not great, I’ve started saying Zwift hates people with jobs and families. I assume they base them on when they think the most people will attend, but I’m not waking up at 3am to run a 5K .

You should see the time for the women’s events this month. The last time you can do an event is at 2 p.m. in my time zone well I have a job that starts at 7:30 in the morning. I can’t be on my exercise things at 5:30 in the morning I would wake up my whole family

I’ve just been scrolling through the venues to find the days/times of the Yorkshire Run The World events, then realised there aren’t any there or in France. That’s sad…both have some interesting countryside sequences.

When did this need to be completed?

I have run them all and no virtual shirt or shoes…emailed Zwift and they told me that they are looking into it
