Virtual Race and Group Race* Challenge Modules in MoveSpring

The Virtual Race and Group Race challenge modules allow participants to navigate through a virtual map based on a total distance goal. Each map is centered around a theme, and as participants move through the map, they'll unlock fun milestones along the way with more details and information about each theme.

*Formerly known as Journey and Group Journey

Selecting a Virtual Race Theme

When adding a Virtual Race or Group Race challenge module to your challenge, you'll be prompted to choose a map theme. In this guide, we'll provide an overview of each available theme so that you can know what to expect from each option and to help you decide which theme will be the best fit your next challenge.

If you want to know the content of each milestone, you will want to create a test challenge with the map of choice. Set a lower distance goal so that you can review all milestone copy. If the current milestone copy does not fit your needs, you can either turn the milestones off or discuss milestone customization with your client success representative. This is an additional feature and added cost.
