How it works
Taking place from the 21st of September 2021, the Vitality Running World Cup – an annual free-to-enter, digital knockout, global running competition – gives everyone the chance to represent their country to be crowned the Vitality Running World Cup Champion. The tournament is open to everyone over the age of 13 and of all fitness levels.
Every participant who runs or jogs at least three kilometers (or 2 miles) in 30 minutes or less will contribute towards their country’s total kilometre tally. For every running goal you achieve, you will also be helping
UNICEF to vaccinate a child against Polio. Every run counts and participation is free by signing up on
runningworldcup.com or by
downloading the Running World Cup app.
Not only is the event back but so are many of our country captains. The eight-time gold medallist and global ambassador Usain Bolt will captain Jamaica once again whilst the 2012 Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis Hill captains the UK and Rio 2016 Champion, Wayde van Nierkerk is back to captain South Africa in a bid to regain the lead. A host of further captains will be announced soon.
Can your country count on you?
