General FAQs

What is a virtual event?

A virtual event is an event that can be completed at any location, at their pace, by utilizing a running app that tracks their performance.
Unlike in-person race, there is no designated course so you can create your very own unique course from wherever you are.

Where can I find my race bib?

Your personalized race bib can be found in your confirmation email (the second email you would have received from Barishal Marathon after registering).

What are required within the virtual run?

We recommend using a running app such as Strava, Runkeeper, Garmin Connect, Nike Run Club, etc., to track your progress. However, there is no obligation, you can use your desired apps. Please ensure you follow our rules and regulations. Any false entries or cheating (such as using a bike to complete the race) will result in your record not being recognized. Additionally, we kindly request all participants to respect the community, their neighborhoods, and local rules and laws, especially for your safety while running.

Can I complete the race indoor, like using a treadmill?

No, your activity must be done outdoor. GPS activity recording is necessary to validate your performance, but in indoor environment, the GPS signals and line of sight with orbiting satellites makes navigation more challenging compared to outdoor environment.

Can I choose my own course?

Yes, you’re free to choose any outdoor route. However, please be mindful of selecting areas with poor GPS signal reception. Additionally, ensure to follow traffic laws and regulations for your safety and respect the community and its surroundings.

I live outside of Bangladesh. Can I participate?

Absolutely! Participants from anywhere in the world are welcome. However, if you finish successfully, please note that you will need to pay the courier fee separately, in addition to the registration fee, for shipping the medal to your address.
