So, where to start? Why do you want to run? And how do you want to make an impact in the world? What kind of event do you want to organize, and can you organize? This section will help you guide your thoughts, and will provide you with tools to make your event a succes! Do you need something that is not provided? Please share your need with us, we can approach our network of event organisers – they may have it for you. If not, we are happy to help you think how to work through it and maybe help others with in the coming years. We do like our support and available tools and guidance to grow in the coming years.

Process

Interested in organizing a local event, but not sure how to pull it off? Or you just want more information? Have a look at this website and if you do have any further questions, please contact us and we will be more than happy to answer your questions. At the bottom of this page you will find a link to download the organiser pack which provides lots of information about organizing your event as well.  We can also connect with organizers from previous years to share about their experience.

So you want to do something, but not sure yet what? First of all, PRAY for guidance! Next, you can have a look at the 2019 – organizer pack. This contains several purposes to run for (the “why”: create awareness, evangelise, mobilize, etc) and an overview of models that can be used (the “how”). Also it would be good to already set a date.

If you have decided to go for it (remember, think BIG, act small) you can of course organise a standalone running event, and even call it Run 4 The World…. But wouldn’t it be awesome to run together with different countries and cultures from all over the world, making a massive impact to those who have not heard the gospel hardly or ever before? Hit the 3. Register event button and a few minutes later it is done. By doing so you will also get access to more support, network of organizers and marketing material templates so make it easy to organize your local event.

Run 4 the World is ON! You are organizing your event, and we are there to help you every way we can. Remember that Run 4 the World is all about bringing people together in a fun, healthy way to create awareness and to mobilize action for projects around the world to reach least reached people groups with the gospel. And all this in a safe manner of course!

After the event we’d love to hear from you and your participants! How did you and they find it? Did it raise awareness or even change people’s lives? How many people ran, how many kilometers? If you were raising funds, how much? But also, what were your learnings in the organisation process or on your R4TW day? What can you or we do better next time? And of course we love photos.. Many photos! And video’s.

We will capture all learnings, next to our own’s and will use that to make R4TW even better and more impactful next year, without compromising on our core values of relationship, fundraising, togetherness and wellness.
