Run Down Under

Designed in 2014, Run Down Under was the first country to be added to Run The World – a concept that originated with an excel spreadsheet, 750 inaugural members and an amazing concept to virtually run around Australia. The original map covers 14,080kms and passes through 98 towns and every state and territory of Australia. An additional map is unlocked once you have completed this journey with a further 15,490kms to tick off.

Run New Zealand

Our newest map and arguably the most scenic. New Zealand is small in many ways, but large in scenery and culture. The journey across both the North Island of NZ and the South Island will see you track through 46 towns and cities, pass historic glaciers and magnificent mountains, and complete the 4,710km journey in the famous town of Christchurch.

Run around UK & Ireland

Originally part of our Run around Europe Map, Run UK & Ireland was split in late 2019. No, it wasn’t part of Brexit, it was to make the Run the world journey more achievable for everyone. Our smallest map at 3,890kms, the challenge is on to finish this map the quickest. Covering England, Ireland, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, one must pass through 29 towns and cities to arrive at the finish line in Dover.

Run around Europe

Launched in 2016, Run around Europe is our largest map in terms of distance and the most diverse. It originally included the UK and Ireland, but in late 2019 it was split to become a stand alone map. To complete this epic journey that totals 17,390kms, you will need to pass through 30 countries and 130 towns and cities to the finish line in Paris.

Run around USA

Launched in 2016, Run around USA will see you pass through 108 town and cities across 34 states, including an 889 mile lap around Alaska. Starting in Pittsburgh and finishing in Washington, Run around USA is 10,670 MILES in length.
