Marvel Virtual Run Singapore
Much to the delight of superhero buffs, 2021’s finally the year where the Marvel schedule returns to normalcy. Alongside the slew of Disney+ series and new movies slated for release, the Marvel Virtual Run is here for you to channel your inner Captain America and sweat it out to earn some exclusive merch.
Run distances from 5KM individually or in groups anywhere you like
One perk of entering a virtual race is the fact that you run just about anywhere you like, whether you’re on a treadmill or simply jogging round your local park.
Your duty as an honorary Avenger is simple – from now till 30th April 2021, you’ve just got to pick and run the distance of the race category you’re entering.
Greenhorns can opt for the individual 5KM ($25) category for a more laid-back experience, but what’s a Marvel experience without a challenge? The individual 25KM ($35) run might seem daunting, but don’t worry as you have the luxury of accumulating the distance over multiple days. It did take our favourite heroes a few tries to take down Thanos, after all.
For team-based challenges, divide and conquer with a buddy or two in the two-person 25KM challenge ($55) or the three-person 25KM challenge ($85). Those with superhero-crazed kiddos aged six to 17 can go for the parent-and-child 15KM ($50) category instead.
To clock in your running distance, download the MOVE application (MOVE by LIV3LY on iOS | Android) or simply sync it to your fave running tracker. Check out the Disney Singapore website for more details regarding the tracker setup and registration.

To fasten your phone securely while escaping from imaginary Outriders, you can purchase one of these limited edition multiway running pouches ($29.90) from the LIV3LY marketplace.
There’s even exclusive promo codes and perks to use to snag you some discounts, so keep tabs on the Disney Singapore website to see if you’re eligible.

Of course, you’ll get your sweat and money’s worth in the form of race entitlements delivered straight to your doorstep. Those who opted for the individual 5KM run will get an exclusive t-shirt and drawstring bag emblazoned with a bold lightning pattern and five iconic hero insignias.
If you chose any other run category, you’ll be bestowed with an exclusive trophy alongside the bag and the t-shirt. The nifty prize comes fitted with a rotating Avengers logo, making it a perfect desk ornament to remind you of your feat.
