Frequently asked questions

Do I need a smartphone?

You will need a way to track your run digitally, either via smartphone, smart watch or other similar device.

Do I need to be over 18?

You need to be old enough to abide by the legislation for smart devices/applications in your own nation and have permission to use such devices.

Why 3KM in 30 minutes?

The Running World Cup is about mass participation, after extensive research we felt this was an achievable goal for almost all ages but also required conscious effort to complete and therefore participate in the event.

I cannot run at the designated time, is that a problem?

Unfortunately we can only accept runs that have been run and logged during the period set out in the fixtures tab of this website, view here.
