Challenge Expired


May 27 - May 29

Drumroll, please... our Global 5K Challenge is back! We want you to join us – and thousands of runners around the world – to track a 5K on Saturday, May 28 or Sunday, May 29.

It’s our BIGGEST event of the year. Fitting, right? And it’s your chance to run the same distance, on the same day, alongside 182 different countries (and counting). You’ll also gain access to the Global 5K site – a virtual hub to view our leaderboard, share training tips, and plan a race day meetup.

Will your country surpass the pace of Netherlands, the reigning champs? Will you hit a personal record? Only one way to find out.


In addition to a free customizable bib and access to the Global 5K site, pre-race packages will be available for purchase. Let’s get you ready for race day!

*Running and walking activities are eligible towards completion.
**GPS, Stopwatch Mode, and manually entered activities eligible towards completion of Global 5K. Only GPS tracked activities will be considered for Top 25 placement.
