• How much does it cost to join adidas Runners?

    Absolutely nothing. adidas Runners is completely free and open to you. The only payment we ask for is your commitment and your drive, which you’ll be bringing with your legs.

  • Why do I need to connect my adidas account to my Runtastic account?

    It is necessary to connect your adidas account to your Runtastic account when you first join a community in the Runtastic app.

    This is an important step, as it enables the Runtastic app to provide up to date information about upcoming events, to confirm your participation at events, and to display your current adidas Runners level and statistics.

    You only need to carry out this step once, so if you’re joining multiple communities, you won’t need to connect your adidas account every time. If you need help connecting your adidas account to Runtastic, please see here.
