Herbalife Nutrition Virtual Run is back again for the second time running. Last year, I also took part in Herbalife Nutrition virtual run as I wanted to motivate myself to start running again. I also took it as a challenge to stay healthy by eating better. And this year, this virtual run come about as timely because I just needed a little push to stick to my health goals. We are just two months away from the end of 2021 and I really hope I could achieve my fitness goals before penning down my resolution for 2022.
Herbalife Nutrition Virtual Run
Similar to last year’s run, the virtual run offers two race categories where you can invite your family and friends to join the challenge with you anytime anywhere. For the individual run category, you can select from the various goal distance which ranges from 5KM to 100KM. As for the team run category, the goal distance ranges from 20 KM to 500 KM.
How to join the virtual run?
Simply purchase your registration kit via their website and then register for the virtual run. Next, run and submit your results. There are cool rewards to be earned after you finish the virtual run!
Herbalife Nutrition Registration Kit
The registration kit comprises Herbalife Nutrition products to help prep you for the virtual run and to kick start a healthier living. This is what makes this virtual run stands out from the rest of the other virtual run. It combines training with nutrition to help you achieve optimum results.
Purchasing this registration kit will also help support a good cause because a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Herbalife Nutrition Foundation to help the children of the Casa Herbalife Nutrition program in Singapore, Children’s Wishing Well.
You can choose either the Virtual Run Protein Kit or the Virtual Run Fibre Kit. Both kits are similar and the difference lies only in one product – the fibre kit has the Active Fibre Complex while the protein kit has the personalised protein powder. Last year, I had the Virtual Run Fibre kit so this year I thought I could try the Protein kit so that I could work on increasing my muscle mass.
The Protein kit comprises the following items:
- Formula 1 Nutritional Shake Mix
- Herbal Aloe Concentrated Aloe Vera
- Herbal Concentrate
- Personalized Protein Powder (for hunger control)
- Virtual Run T-Shirt
- Virtual Run Waist Pouch
- Herbalife Nutrition Gym Towel
- Herbalife Nutrition x Philips Mini Blender
- Herbalife Nutrition Sports Bag
That’s quite a huge bundle worth of products to prep you for the run. Out of all the Herbalife Nutrition products, I personally like the Herbal Concentrate and Aloe Vera concentrate. The Herbal concentrate is actually a low-calorie tea mix blended from green tea, and orange pekoe tea with cardamom seed, lemon peel and hibiscus really helps to curb my appetite and it is great tasting too.
As for the Aloe vera concentrate, it helps with digestion and detoxification. Unfortunately, the concentrate can’t last very long and have to be consumed within a month after opening. This time I got the mandarin flavoured Aloe Vera concentrate and I recently learnt that you could actually mix the Herbal Concentrate into the Aloe Vera concentrate to make a refreshing drink.
Run or walk anytime, anywhere!
The best part about this virtual run is probably the fact that you are able to clock in the distance anytime anywhere at your own convenience. There’s no excuse not to run when you can literally run in your neighbourhoods.
There are two options for submitting your virtual run results. You can sync the GPS tracking running app with the virtual run website and run with your mobile running app switched on. The other option is to do a manual submission by sending a screenshot of your ﬁnished run. The screenshot needs to reflect the activity date, distance (in km), duration of the run and average pace of the run (time/km). If you are using a treadmill, you may take a photo of the treadmill dashboard with the distance.
Once you have completed the virtual run, you will receive an e-certiﬁcate and a finisher medal. And for a limited time only, individual achievers who complete over 150km of accumulative distances can receive additional gifts. Do head over to their website to find out more!
