Final Ranking

You and your squad are invited to the
On SquadRace in Germany!

We’re inviting you to be part of the event that turns running into the ultimate team sport.

This is the 5K race like no other. Every step, runner and second counts. With your squad pushing you forwards, can you achieve a new P.R.? Sign up now for the On SquadRace. Because together we rise.

HOW IT WORKS
Within the race heats, the teams run in opposite directions. The winner will be named the fiercest in Germany. Training counts, racing counts, squad size counts.

So join the On SquadRace Berlin celebration. We’ll bring the party. You bring the performance. When your race is done, kick back with beers, street food, drinks, music – and lots of cool surprises too.

Please note that if you can’t or don’t want to be at the city event in person, you can also start your 5k race virtually from any location. The only thing that is important for the ranking is which country your squad comes from.

SQUADRACE FAQs

Do I need to be part of a squad to take part?
Yes, all runners in the SquadRace compete as part of a squad. Of course you can also create your own new squad for the event.

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 seconds for your first 100 runners on race day). All squads must be at least 30% female.

When can I register?
Registration runs from August 15 until September 9 (5.59PM).

When does the training period (counting kilometres) start?
Training runs from August 22 – September 9.

Where can I run?
We'll have physical events in Berlin, London, Paris, Vienna, Amsterdam, Oslo, Barcelona, and Zurich. You can also join virtually by hosting your own race!

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 time and distance. Upload a screenshot or link to your activity as proof. For Berlin, Vienna, and London events, we'll provide time tracking with your personal bib. You will receive the bib at the event location.

How do squads accumulate time?
Your overall team time accumulates from:

• The average 5k speed of all your squad members on race day
• Minus the total average km run per squad member during the training phase (1 sec reduction per average km)
• Minus the size of your squad (up to your 100th runner) on race day (1 sec reduction per race participant)

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.
