The event was held from November 1 to 30, with over 15,000 participants from the public, as well as Herbalife Nutrition members and employees in the Asia Pacific region. The participants came together to race at their own pace, covering a total distance of over 1,053,000 kilometers – equivalent to running around the world 26 times.
Held for three consecutive years in a row, Herbalife Nutrition Virtual Run has accumulated 54,000 participants. They have clocked a distance of over 3,220,000 kilometers, which is enough to circle the earth 80 times.
– We initiated the Virtual Run in 2020, to help break sedentary lifestyles that became all too commonplace due to the pandemic. I’m delighted to see that the momentum has been sustained for the third year running, with new and returning participants joining as individuals or as teams with their friends and families, and covering impressive distances. With the New Year approaching, we encourage people to keep up with their new healthy habits and maintain active lifestyles supported by good nutrition – said Stephen Conchie, regional president of Herbalife Nutrition for Asia Pacific and China.
The Herbalife Nutrition Virtual Run is the highlight event of the “Get Moving with Good Nutrition” campaign, an annual initiative by Herbalife Nutrition to help Asia Pacific consumers adopt healthy active living habits and foster communities that support their healthy living journeys. This year, the event was complemented by a brand-new Run App, to offer a more interactive and seamless way of tracking the participants’ progress.
The Virtual Run also contributes to raising funds for Herbalife Nutrition Foundation (HNF). This year’s Virtual Run raised more than US$74,000, boosting the total for three years to nearly US$240,000.
