The Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee (TTOC) and By Athletes for Athletes (BAFA) Sports have collaborated to launch a virtual five kilometre race called #GetMovingTTO.
#GetMovingTTO aims to promote wellness and physical activity in Trinidad and Tobago through the use of technology.
Participants download an app and then complete a 5km in any location of their choosing, earning a medal for their efforts.

The project is also being used as a fundraiser, with the sign-up fee going towards the 10Golds24 Athlete Welfare and Preparation Fund.
TTOC have created the fund after setting themselves the goal of winning 10 Olympic gold medals by Paris 2024, to be achieved by changing the way current and future Olympians are developed and managed.
It costs 99 Trinidad and Tobago dollars (£11.50/$12/€13).
