The success of a Terang primary school's virtual cross country has led to a bigger virtual event.
And this time all south-west primary and secondary students and their families are invited to join the fun.
The Virtual Duathlon Schools' Challenge is designed to get youngsters moving this school holidays which start on September 19.
Alison Kenna, a psychical education teacher at St Thomas' Primary School in Terang, has organised the event.
Kenna wants to give south-west students the opportunity to represent their school.
"It's often the highlight of the year for a lot of kids," Kenna said.
She knows how much it means for youngsters to compete for their school at events such as regional athletics carnivals and Basketball Victoria's Hoop Time program.
Kenna said she originally got the virtual cross country idea from the Warrnambool Tri Club's virtual events earlier this year.
The duathlon event has been endorsed by the Tri Club.
Students are challenged to each week submit their best run and bike ride times to Kenna up to October 11.
Kenna has set achievable distance targets.
The focus is improvement rather than the fastest in each age group.
So in the final week of the competition students should be aiming to get their best times.
Twenty-two students from seven schools have already jumped on board.
