What is a Virtual Race

Covid-19 pandemic has been on the front stage forcing major sporting activities to be cancelled or postponed. However, we should not sit and wait for the pandemic to be over but to continue to encourage and promote a healthy lifestyle starting from us and influencing others. We should not forget all the beautiful sites and sceneries around us in the Mekong region and embrace ourselves in them. As the new normal advises that we may not able to run in a big groups, there are virtual runs as an alternative which will allow us, our families and friends to continue to stay healthy.
