150,000 runners unite in one run around the world
On 16th October 2021, 150,000 runners (and counting) from every single country in the world are joining together in a giant 24-hour relay for global unity, celebrating humanity in all its forms.
The event starts at 9am Kiribati time where local runners will be lacing up their trainers for an hour of activity. Once this is complete, they’ll be handing their digital baton over to the next timezone, who in turn will complete their hour. As the day unfolds, the baton will make its way around the entire world, uniting runners from every corner of the globe.
“The power of people is incredible and it’s amazing what we can achieve when we all come together. The running community has always been special to me, so being able to share a little piece of that and connect people on a global scale brings me so much joy.”
says One Run Co-Founder Danny Bent.
Alongside this, One Run will be broadcasting live from London as hundreds of runners gather to run around the city’s streets at 9am UK time. With interviews and messages from participants all over the world, live handovers, music and more all streaming via the One Run website - this global extravaganza is something everyone can be a part of.
“We welcome every country, every age, every ability, every gender - everyone with open arms. This isn’t about being the fittest or fastest. It’s about showing up and taking part in whatever way you are able. I am so excited for the big day!”
The One Run Global Relay takes place on 16th October 2021.
