Win your country, get a top-three finish across APAC or secure a performance wildcard and your challenge goes global. You’ll head for a showdown with the best from the Americas, Europe, and the rest of the world in a battle to be crowned 2021 SquadRace Champions.
Do I need to be part of a squad to take part?
Yes, all runners in SquadRace compete as part of a squad. But you don’t have to bring your own squad. If you don’t know other runners keen to take part, simply join Team On (Password: teamon) in your country.
How big should my squad be?
Any squad must have at least seven runners. There is no maximum limit on your squad size (although you’ll only accumulate points for your first 50 runners). All squads must be at least 30% female.
When can I register?
Registration runs from August 23 – September 10. Register here.
When does the race period start?
Racing runs September 11 – September 26.
Where can I run?
Wherever you like. Hit your local streets, park, or nature reserve. Just don’t go downhill (nobody likes a cheat).
How do I record a run?
Track your runs with any tracking app, then — once the race is live and your squad log-in page is active — simply enter your name and time. Upload a screenshot or link to your activity as proof.
What happens if I’m not happy with my 5k time?
Your best 5k time will count towards your squad’s total points. If you’re not happy with your first attempt, simply try again. You can attempt your 5k ‘Speed’ time as often as you like during the race period.
How do squads accumulate points?
During the race phase, your points accumulate from:
• The average 5k speed for all your squad members
• The total average km run per squad member
• The size of your squad (up to your 50th runner)
How can I track my squad’s performance?
You can visit the live On SquadRace scorecard to see where you stand and what you need to do to overtake your rivals.

Who makes the global stages of the competition?
To make it past the regional stage, your squad needs to win your country, get a top-three finish in your region, or secure a performance wildcard by getting enough points to be part of the finals without winning your country or securing a top-three position in your region. Overall, 64 teams will compete in the global finals.
When, how, and where will the global SquadRace finals take place?
Regional SquadRace races finish on September 26. Global finals will take place around the world (date TBC) as a live virtual event.
How much does it cost to enter SquadRace?
Nothing. It’s completely free.
