How it works
Taking place from 5 March 2020, 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 the public whatever of your age or fitness level. Every participant who runs or jogs at least three kilometers in 30 minutes or less will contribute towards your country’s total kilometres. Every run counts and participation is free by signing up on runningworldcup.com
A number of Olympic Gold medallists have been named as ambassadors for the Vitality Running World Cup, each taking the lead as captains for their county. The eight-time gold medallist and global ambassador Usain Bolt will captain Jamaica, the 2012 Olympic gold medallist Jessica Ennis Hill will captain the UK and Rio 2016 Champion Wayde van Nierkerk will lead for South Africa. A host of further captains will be announced soon.
Can your country count on you?
