IAAF LAUNCHES GLOBAL ONE-MILE RUN IN 24 COUNTRIES OVER 24 HOURS

Following the success of last year’s global event, IAAF Run 24-1 will return for its second edition on Saturday 2 June with a series of 24 one-mile runs staged around the world, to support the Global Running Day, the worldwide celebration that encourages everyone to get moving.

Beginning on the Pacific island of Fiji and ending 24 hours later in USA, the IAAF Run 24-1 initiative incorporates races held in 24 cities across 24 countries on six continents to create the largest continuous one-mile run to ever take place across multiple cities in 24 hours.

More than 12,000 runners participated in the inaugural IAAF Run 24-1 in 2018 and this year the participation is expected to increase across the 24 host cities.
