Race Directors 5K

Race starts: 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST / 7pm CEST

Are you a race director? Timer? Vendor? Nonprofit professional working on and with races? This is the run for you!

After a pretty stressful 12 months, it’s your time to have some fun. Join us for this industry 5K celebrating the people who work hard every day to bring amazing races and unforgettable experiences to the world.

Race Directors Run is a free 5K event - there's absolutely nothing to pay to join. All we want is for you to enjoy yourself and have fun racing alongside your industry colleagues from around the world.

Race Day

When you join our Race Directors 5K, you will be signing up to run your 5K from anywhere in the world. BUT, you will be running this race live alongside your colleagues through the real-time virtual racing app, Charge Running

After you sign up for the race, click here to download the Charge Running app and get your account ready for race day. 

The race will start on May 27 at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST / 7pm CEST - or whatever that is in your time zone. Do log in to the app 5' before the start of the race to enjoy the pre-race buzz and get ready to race!

During the race, there will be live race announcers commenting on the race - and perhaps a surprise or two for everyone joining in :)


Whether you're a race management company, sole race director, nonprofit or industry vendor, we want you to take pride in representing your organization in the Run. So make sure to create a Team for your organization, company or race during your registration - or join an existing Team, if your Team has already been set up by a colleague.

On race day, wear your company or race T-shirt and make sure to snap a few selfies of yourself and/or your Team before, during and after the race. All photos uploaded through your participant profile will be displayed for other participants to see on the Race Directors Run page after the end of the race.


Although we ask nothing for you to take part in the Run, we'd like you to consider making a donation to our amazing charity partner Girls on the Run

Girls on the Run® is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams. Inspiring girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running, Girls on the Run transforms the lives of girls across the country by teaching them critical life skills that stay with them for a lifetime. 

We couldn't really think of a more deserving cause than Girls on the Run, and it would mean a great deal to us if you chose to donate any amount you feel comfortable with to this amazing organization. You can donate when you sign up for the Run or at any time by clicking the "Donate" button anywhere on this page.

Every single cent you donate will be going directly to Girls on the Run.
