How does it all work?

On Saturday 16th October 2021, we're uniting the world in one giant human-powered relay. We're inviting you to take part in joining thousands of people from 195 countries. All you need to do is run, walk or move your body for one hour at 9am local time.

You'll be able to download the One Run App to track your run and pass on the digital relay baton to fellow runners all around the world. Whether you run a 10k in your local park with friends or walk around the dinner table due to lockdown restrictions, everyone is invited.

Who can take part?

Anyone and everyone. We welcome every country, every age, every ability, every gender, every human with open arms.

We don’t care if you’re not fit. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never run. This is about showing up, taking part and giving it your all.

Can I get my friends involved?

Absolutely - the more the merrier, the One Run Global Relay is for EVERYONE. We really mean that.

This year we've introduced our epic Teams Challenge, so if running as a group is your thing, check out all the details here. Ooh and just to let you know... There's going to be tonnes of awesome prizes!

How does my One Run help the world?

We want to put a bit of good back into the world and give those who need it a real leg up. We do this by helping support children to get active around the world!

By tracking your miles on our app or fundraising for one of our charity parters, you're helping us make a big difference. Find out more here.
