Event Series

As motivation is our key goal here at RFTW, we believe that having a variety of interesting series of events will keep you focussed and on track to achieve your goals. Below are the current and upcoming series.

The RFTW Opening Series

The Events

Join us all for the Opening Series of Run For The World. This is a FREE, solo event series in which you are required to run the distance you choose in one run and, on completion, you will receive a reward. The distances you can choose from are 3km, 5km, 10km and 21.1km.

The series will consist of three events, one per month. You can compete in all of them or just one, it is entirely up to you. Sign up is FREE so why not enter all of the races?

The Rewards

Even though this is a free series, there is still a reward for everyone who takes part. There is also a random prize box draw in which everyone has a chance to win an awesome goody bag of RFTW running accessories.

Upon completion of each of the events, we are giving away an embroidery patch of the Run For The World logo in either blue, bronze, silver or gold. Each colour represents the different distances to choose from. With three events in this series, there is a chance for you to progress each event to a longer distance and go for gold!

The Wonders of the World

The Challenge

Our first Challenge Series is to celebrate the greatest wonders of our world. There are so many to choose from, however we have narrowed it down to 12 fantastic, natural wonders that our planet has to offer.

There will be twelve events, one per calendar month, beginning with July, 2019. During each event, you can choose your distance to run between 30km, 100km or 200km. This is all about pushing yourself and giving yourself a great target.

The Rewards

We have a great reward for this Challenge Series! Each month, upon completing your chosen distance, you will receive a medal in the shape of a jigsaw piece depicting an image of that month's wonder. As you complete more of the events, you will be able to connect the pieces together to create an awesome collage of the wonders of the world.

Depending on the distance that you choose, your medals will come in a gold, silver or bronze coloured design. You can choose a different distance each month if you know that one month you will not be able to run as much or if you will be available to run more.

The Four Seasons

The Challenge

What’s the biggest ‘Four Seasons’?

No, it’s not the hotel chain…

No, it’s not the four violin concerti by Antonio Vivaldi...

Of course, it’s the Run For The World Four Seasons Challenge!

Here we have our seasonal Challenge Series. This consists of four, three month long, events to keep you running regularly and consistently all year long. We begin with the Autumn event, 1st September until 30th November. During this time period you can choose a target of either 100km, 200km or 400km to run. These are great targets for all abilities so get outside, get running and most of all, have fun!

The Rewards

In similar fashion to the Wonders of the World Series, we have chosen to design four connecting medals that will form a round-cornered square shape when put together. If you manage to complete your chosen distance within the three month period, you will receive the medal with a beautiful scene of each season.

Like the WotW rewards, these come in gold, silver or bronze, for the three distance categories. The road featured in the medal and other parts of the design will be this colour, along with the writing.
