What is One Run Global?
One Run Global is an extraordinary event uniting the world in a wave of positivity and helping to end discrimination.
- On December 10th 2020 – Human Rights Day – people of all ages across the world will be running, walking or moving for 15 – 60 minutes. 2020 has been filled with extraordinary events and stories of inequality and injustice. People are coming together to show the world that they will not be forced apart. That love is a human right and no one should be hated for who they are.
- There has never been a more important time to show up and show the world what we can do when we come together. One Run is a movement of hope. Built on the power of people, we are running together to unite the world.
- To date 4,860 participants in 185 countries have joined. All abilities and ages!
