I love the fact that anyone can organize a 5K, 10K or whatever run they want…and that every day, there are plenty of group runs to join and participate. I’m new to Zwift and have run 3 5K’s and a 10K over the last couple of weeks. In most situations, there are between 5 and 10 people in the group. I also love that you can designate a group that runs at your pace.
What I’ve been looking for (And maybe I just don’t know where to look), is a weekly run/even or something that is much larger that draws hundreds of runners to the race. It could still be runners of all running abilities, but having that as a weekly large race would be really great. I would say Zwift could coordinate these races and provide large XP increases for anyone who participates and completes the race or otherwise provide free virtual stuff.
Running with others is motivating…and having a race with hundreds of folks would be that much more appealing. Thoughts?
