Let's run the city!

Aren’t we all pace chasers in some kind of way? 

At Mercedes-Benz racing is obviously part of our DNA. It motivates us to aim for ever-more ambitious goals and to rapidly develop the mobility of tomorrow. 

As part of the FIA Formula E Championship, we do not only strive for success on the track, but also for a positive contribution towards life in urban centres. On this mission we’ve created a unique experience: the Mercedes-EQ Run.

After the first run during the race weekend in Berlin 2019 we will launch the 2021 edition - for all of you - worldwide.

Are you up for a challenge?

 This is how it works:

Simply run 90 minutes from July 19 - August 15 and bring yourself on our leaderboard on Strava. We decided to collaborate with Strava, the social media plattform for athletes, to let you join the Mercedes-EQ Run community from all over the world.

As we race the cities, you are challenged to run for 45 minutes twice. Why 2x 45 minutes? Because a Formula E race is 45 minutes + 1 lap and we’re about to have 2 runs every race weekend.  Complete the challenge and earn the Mercedes-EQ Run finisher kit.

Together for a good cause.

Active worldwide. And successful.

We firmly believe that sport has the power to change the world beyond the finishing line. If you want to do good after your run, check out the Laureus Sport for Good foundation website! 

Laureus Sport for Good supports 240 sports projects in over 40 countries, using the power of sport to improve the lives of young people around the world. 

Any donation no matter how small can make a difference.
