Treadmill Running for Good – Zwift Launch Mission to Support Great Ormond Street Hospital Throughout April

Zwift, the virtual reality platform transforming the face of treadmill running today announced the launch of its Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) Mission that will run throughout April.

The aim of the GOSH mission is for the Zwift community to run 18,000 hours this month which will unlock the donation of $25,000. The 18,00 hours is in honour of the 18,000 children who visit GOSH each month. Each individual that completes over 4 hours running on Zwift will unlock the virtual GOSH run kit for their garage. Any additional hours will count towards the 18,000 hour goal. 

What is Zwift and how to get started
Zwift Run is a virtual reality training app for running that turns indoor training into a game and lets thousands of people from across the globe run together and compete – the social side of Zwift Run is great at a time when many are isolated.

Zwift Run is easy to use either with a Bluetooth treadmill or a £37.00 Bluetooth footpod so is perfect for your request of smart-tech. 

With over 1.5 million members having either run or cycled on the app since its formation in 2014, Zwift offers unique indoor group runs, dynamic training plans from 5k to the marathon, and intense interval sessions. Among the app’s biggest advocates are Olympic champions Sir Mo Farah and Gwen Jorgensen.
