Runday organise weekly 5-kilometre timed running events across Europe.
The events are free to and open everyone and because all race results are recorded online you can monitor your progress or compete with your friends.
runday was inspired by a British movement called parkrun which began in Autumn 2014 when 13 runners met in Bushy Park, Teddington. Since then the movement has grown into an international family of almost two million registered members and volunteers.
Sadly, parkrun weren’t interested in Ukraine (too busy apparently) so we decided to do it ourselves and do it better 🙂 “Be the change you want to see” and all that stuff…
Our races are organised by volunteers. There are no age or fitness restrictions so you can run like the wind or take a maintain a lighter pace to enjoy the distance. The main thing is that you enjoy yourself and stay healthy.
We welcome experienced runners and professional athletes but, we are most proud of members who started running because of our events.
Runday is happening every Saturday in Kyiv.
Registration is free, open to everyone and takes just 5 minutes. You only need to register once on the runday website and then you can run in any runday race. Because you have one account and one runner ID (QR Code) all your times are recorded and attributed to you.
Once you have registered you will see a QR code on your profile page. This QR code contains your runner ID, so it is all you need to run in a runday race. Print the code and bring it with you to the race. If you forget, we won’t be able to give you a race time.Bring your ID and run. It’s a simple as this. This same runday ID/badge is valid for ALL future runday events
