Run, walk, hike, or hit the treadmill.  Add your activity to Strava, then Virtual Baton App adds your distance to your team total and moves your team along a map.

EVENT TYPES

There are two different styles of event; virtual team relays, and virtual team challenges.

Virtual Team Challenge

Use Virtual Baton App to assemble and manage a team. Team members can run and add distance at any time.

Distance completed by anyone on the team at any time gets added to the team total!

Virtual Relay

The virtual baton tells people when it’s their turn to run. Any distance completed while someone holds the virtual baton gets added to the team total.
