We know the Runkeeper community is spread out through hundreds of countries across the globe, but sometimes as an individual runner it can be hard to remember just how big and awesome this community is. We wanted to fix that by encouraging all of you—from San Francisco to Stockholm—to get out and run a 5k on the same day!
Join our Global 5k Challenge to get going and be sure to track a 5k run or walk on Sunday December 6th. As soon as you sign up, we’ll send you a digital bib that you can print and wear on race day. You’ll be able to purchase our exclusive Global 5k gear. We’ve got a range of designs in both t-shirts and long-sleeve hoodies, so you’ll be sure to represent your race accomplishment in style!
The top 25 fastest winners will get a free year of Runkeeper Go, as well as bragging rights. We’ll also be taking a close look at how each country did and share all those fun tidbits after the race. You want to make your home turf proud, right? Be sure to get out there!
Wherever you run on December 6th, you’ll be joined by thousands of like-minded runners across the world. We can’t want to see you on the road.
