why Run The World?

The concept for Run The World is simple: sign up and link your fitness tracking device (Garmin or Strava), then run as many miles as you can in the month of SeptemberYou, along with thousands of other runners in Leicester and beyond, will be able to track both your personal and collective progress on a live, interactive map, as you make your way ‘around the world,’ taking part in challenges and themed runs along the way as you go from place to place. Whether you cover 100 miles or one doesn’t matter, what counts is doing your bit to help us make it round the globe!

Why Run The world?

Run the World is a new and unique challenge that will see the whole Run Leicester community and beyond come together as a team and cover tens of thousands of miles all the way around the world live on an interactive map. Replacing the original Run Leicester Festival scheduled for this autumn, we will be embarking on a route around all of the world’s most famous cities and iconic landmarks from Europe to Africa, Asia and beyond! 

So, how does it work? 

We are asking runners that register to simply run as much as they can between 1st – 30th September. Every time you run, the distance you cover will be added to both an individual and team total, either manually or via a Strava or Garmin account that you link to your registration. The further you and the Run Leicester community run, the more individual rewards you will unlock, and the further the whole team will make it on each of the Run The World stage maps.

Who can take part?

Anyone and everyone is welcome to enter and take part. Whether you can run one mile a week or one hundred, Run The World is for you. Depending on how far we’ve run and where we find ourselves on a particular day, we’ll be encouraging you all to lace up your trainers and get moving with fun themed runs, and at the end of the challenge you will receive your very own Run The World medal to celebrate the achievement. No-one can achieve this by themselves. Every single mile and kilometre run counts and gets us further on our journey to Run The World!
