The World Relay was born from a love of running and the power of its community. We want to share that love and joy with the entire world. We believe in the power of togetherness. One of the most beautiful things about our diverse and wonderful planet is that we are all different.
We're here to celebrate that! To us, it is about more than running. This is about radical inclusivity and trying to leave the world a better place than we found it.
