A sense of community in the virtual world

Set up milestone-based challenges and automatically keep track of individual and team progress in a visual way. Add event leaderboards to encourage healthy competition.

Benefit from 100% fundraising page creation and embedded donation buttons to help your supporters raise more. Get centralised reporting to save time on admin and platform management.

Enjoy full customisation – from multiple options for participation in your challenge (walking, running, cycling, swimming, other) to personalised milestone emails, custom branding capabilities and much more.

Let your supporters easily upload their activity via Strava – the most widely used fitness app – or manually through their preferred tracking apps. Benefit from mobile-ready event and fundraising pages for a first-class supporter experience.

Experience Virtual Journeys in 5 steps

Customise this page with your logo, brand colours, cover photo, and share more information about your challenge.

The mapped route determines the target distance for the event. You can select the event dates.

Your map is shown on the event, individual and team fundraising pages, displaying the key milestones of the route.

Event leaderboards show who’s completed your challenge. They are available on the individual and team pages too. Let’s check out Wendy’s fundraising page.

This is Wendy’s map. It’s showing how many miles she has already travelled based on the activity she is uploading manually or via Strava.

“We’re delighted with this new innovation from Enthuse. The development of their virtual event capability is allowing us to launch a new version of our London Moonwalk. We are creating a 52 mile version of the event using the Virtual Journeys product, and are delighted to be able to bring this new challenge to our supporters, under our own brand.”
Guy Aubertin – Director of Fundraising and Operations
"Virtual Journeys was just what we were looking for. It enabled us to bring our vision to life by creating a bespoke map and challenge that appealed to a wide range of our supporters. We loved that it was fully customisable and allowed us to deliver a fun, unique and exciting virtual challenge that was easy for everyone to get involved in."

Frequently asked questions

We can set up a ready-to-use map for you in only 48 hours. The development of custom maps can vary between 4-10 days based on complexity.

As the organiser you decide how you’d like your supporters to complete the challenge. You can choose from walking, running, cycling, swimming, there is also another category if the type of activity is not covered in the list.

We do! Your virtual challenges know no limits. We offer ready-to-use routes outside the UK and Ireland and we can also help you set up any international custom routes of your choice.

Virtual Journeys are available as part of the Enthuse Fundraising & Events solution. You can find more information here.

All of the routes are digital, it means that maps don’t show your supporters’ actual location. If they do decide to start their journey in the physical world too (Peru, here we come!) and they participate in a group challenge, only their team members will be able to see their location if they are uploading it to the map.

Yes, participants can take part in Virtual Journeys both individually and as part of a team. Individual and team fundraising pages both come with a dynamic Google Map to keep track of the progress they are making.
