The Ireland Pub Crawl Virtual Challenge guides participants on a virtual loop around Ireland while supporting charity.
The upcoming Ireland Pub Crawl Virtual Challenge, presented by Vision Event Management, allows participants to partake in either a 50-mile or 100-mile virtual loop of Ireland between January 16 and March 17, St. Patrick's Day.
Participants can complete their virtual challenge in any form of exercise, be it running, walking, swimming, biking, or something else. The virtual course will start at The Guinness Storehouse and will finish at Jameson Distillery, both located in Ireland's capital city of Dublin.
If you're feeling particularly ambitious heading into the new year, there are extended routes as part of the Pub Crawler Club (Dublin to Galway - 140 Miles,
Dublin to Cork - 165 Miles, Castle Tour - 210 Miles, Countryside Tour - 250 Miles) where participants can receive:
- Tour specific Coaster
- Customized bib for each tour
- Customized finishers certificate for each tour
- Milestone Postcard Greetings for each tour
During the virtual challenge, participants can learn about Irish pubs, history, and more while supporting the US-based charity Indiana Canine Assistant Network (ICAN), which places highly-trained dogs in canine/client partnerships or as Facility Dogs supplying animal-assisted therapy at schools, courthouses, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers.
Organizers say this challenge combines physical activity while virtually taking participants around the vibrant city of Dublin. As a virtual challenge, participants can complete the routes anytime and anywhere. Times will not be collected, but participants will be able to set milage goals and log their miles online.
