That’s right, the Runator Runningpiadas are already here! For the first time ever, you can compete against elite athletes in official races.
You choose the distance:
When you register, you will receive your bib number to print out and wear for the race you choose–from August 5 to August 21, 2016, from anywhere in the world, only with your watch or running app.
You’ll be competing in a global ranking with runners all over the world, and of course with professional athletes as they go for the gold. What’s it like running the same race as Bruno Hortelano? Would you like to test the efforts made by athletes Carles Castillejo or Diana Martin?
And of course there will be prizes, only this time the most points will be earned by sharing on social networks. We love seeing your photos, so we want you to share on your social networks using the hashtag #Runningpiadas. Upload a photo running with your bib, or share your run from Runator–whatever you want, but be original! Those who get the most retweets or likes will be the winners of the exclusive #RunningPiadas Runator shirt.
