Welcome to the first WORLD RUN!

Date: August 16th

We want to unite the world under the slogan #wekeeponrunning. This is our mission for August 16th, 2020, so be there when the starting signal is given. We keep on running – virtually – together!

In turbulent times it’s good when the world moves a little bit closer and pulls together. Sporting togetherness has always worked well in this respect. That’s why August 16th focuses on this first ever worldwide run. Run for yourself and against your inner couch potato, for your country, so that it can move to the top of the national ranking, or for as well as with the whole world. Let’s see what we can move together!

You have the whole day to complete the run. While running you track yourself and take a screenshot of the tracking app or a photo of the smartwatch at the end. Make sure that you have uploaded your personal time until 11:59 p.m. via the upload link from the confirmation email. On www.lauf-weiter.de you can register and also order one of the exclusive World Run edition souvenirs. Tell your friends about our mission with the hashtag #wekeeponrunning and be a part of the world in motion!
