A virtual jog with Sir Mo…
Indoor training application, Zwift, have for several years now held rides hosted by professional cyclists and triathletes – we’ve had many host our own TRI247 Workout Series sessions for example.
Here’s an opportunity to do similar on Zwift Run (more on that HERE), courtesy of a Christmas Eve 5km with London 2012 and Rio 2016 double-double Gold medallist, Mo Farah. The run starts at 2:30 p.m. today (Christmas Eve), UK-time.

How to use Zwift
The Zwift app is free to download on iOS and Google Play, so all runners will be able to run for free without subscribing to the app.
That said, in order to use the Zwift app on a treadmill, runners will need a bluetooth enabled footpod, such as the Zwift RunPod, or a Bluetooth enabled treadmill.
