Frequently Asked Questions

What is RankRunner?
RankRunner is an online platform where rank your position in a worldwide ranking as a runner. Also you can upload your training and official race times and prepare yourself for upcoming races.
How does the ranking work?
We use a complex algorithm - designed by experts - to classify you as a runner. Said algorithm puts the individual ranking of every runner in a range between 1 and 10,000, with 1 being the maximum performance you can achieve. Every runner has a ranking in RankRunner, depending on their regularity, intensity, and difficulty of their training, as well as their participation and time in official races.
Can another runner have the same position as me in the ranking?
It can happen, yes. If both runners match in style and running intensity, the algorithm will assign you the same number within the 1 to 10,000 range.
Is RankRunner only for professional runners?
No way! RankRunner is for of all shapes, sizes, ages, and places. So tell the world, invite your friends, share it with people you want to compete with or against.

What do I do if I find out about a race that isn’t mentioned on RankRunner?

As you know, RankRunner enables you to browse by country, by date or by distance and look for races around the world. And, if you don’t find a particular official race that you have taken part in or want to join, you can always take the initiative to add it yourself.

You can easily add your own races and share them with your friends:


  1. Click on “Races” in the menu at the top.
  2. Now go to “Next Races”, click on “My Next Races” and “Add new race”.
  3. Fill in the required information. If it is an official race, tick the appropriate box and add a link to the webpage so we can validate it. If it isn’t an official race, you can mark it as private so it isn’t accessible to all users.
  4. Finally click “Upload”, join and share it with your friends.
  5. If you wish to add a race that you have already joined and run, you can do so by going to the “Past Races” tab, clicking on “My Past Races “ then “Add new race” and repeating all the steps mentioned above.
What do I do if I browse for runners and don’t find anyone?
Your search may have been too specific. Reset the filters and try again.
