On Saturday December 3, and Sunday December 4, 2016, runners and walkers from across the world came together to celebrate the 3rd edition of the Runkeeper Global 5K.

This is our favorite event and we love seeing everyone come together to showcase just how strong and vibrant the international running community can be. Runners of all abilities from every corner of the world joined us, and we loved hearing your stories. Check out the final participation numbers to see how your country stacked up!

One of the best parts of the Global 5K is seeing runners like you in action! For a lot of you running is an individual activity, but it’s always great to remember that you aren’t alone. Here are just a few of the moments you shared with us from across the globe.

This time of year can be tough for those of us in the northern part of the world but you proved that nothing, not even snow and ice, can stop you!
