A story

Hi, I am Jana Gallus, an associate professor at UCLA. I have been a runner ever since moving house made a team sport pretty much impossible. In 2018 I had triplets. I really wanted to get back into running. In 2020 I got to run LA again.

And then came Covid-19 and thwarted future marathon plans.

Thankfully, I was not the only one who wanted to run despite the pandemic. That’s how RunTheWorld was born. You can find impressions from our 2021 runs here and on Twitter.

Sign up below to join us for future runs. We are an open initiative that includes running aficionados as well as those who simply want to have fun and be active. Check out our Footprint and help us cover the globe.

We’ll run the world again, on March 18, 2023

By signing up you agree to participate in a large-scale social experiment – run with and by social scientists ;)
