Hosting - World Road Running Championships

World Athletics Road Running Championships


For one weekend every year, the World Athletics Road Running Championships (WRRC) host city is transformed into the road running capital of the world.


The WRRC is an annual two-day festival of road running, which comprises of Women’s and Men’s world championship races across three distances including the Half Marathon, 5km and Mile.


There is no shortage of star quality on show, but the real stars are the tens of thousands of mass participants that will take over the host city's streets to run in World Championship races.
