After the Zwift Racing League and Zwift Duathlon League have proven to be successful, Zwift now adds another racing league to the program: the Running League. Runners will challenge each other as part of teams in a variety of different formats.

The Zwift Running League kicks off next Friday (Apr. 16) and will take place every Friday for six weeks. Zwift expects a lot of interest – the Zwift Racing League currently attracts over 1,800 cycling teams, while the Duathlon League had 1,600 individual participants in the first season.

Athletes of all ages and levels can join the Zwift Running League. Depending on your level, Zwift will select the right group for you. There will be both Points Races and Relay races. In Points Races, all runners will score points based on their final result. The Relay will add up the 2 km time for each athlete.
