Open to all Operation Mobilisation Field and Country Leaders, you will be leading the way for your team and supporters in building community locally, joining together around the world in something active and raising money for your ministry or important projects. All you’ve got to do is run, invite a few friends or supporters, involve a few partners and raise some money. To get things started we are sponsoring you $25, $50 or $100 for each km you run in 1 hour.
Meeting the values of R4TW

Places Taken So Far
That’s OK you can organise an event any time up to 28 days after the Global Day 26th September – it’s better if we all try to run on the same day but just let us know when you will be organising your event on the Registration Form
It is important that the field or country leader is fully involved but if running really isn’t easy for you then you may nominate another OMer to run in your place.
The Bronze level is the best option – please involve your contacts from anywhere in the world and ask them not just to sponsor you but to organise a small event wherever they are and raise the required amount.
No – these distances are set as a target and a challenge. Most people can walk at about 5km per hour so the minimum of 6km is achievable by most people – also we want this to be an encouragement for you to get fit and stay fit so get training! If you are physically unable to complete this desired level due to personal health reasons, you may appoint someone on your OM team to take your place as the qualifying runner.
Go for the next level down – try to achieve the criteria of the level you wanted as others may not achieve the standard and we will promote from the level below if all criteria are achieved.
We will assess you for the next level down and award on that basis
No – please record all of their details at the event – name distance and money raised – but do not register on this website as it will confuse
We trust you! Simply make a record of how far you and your group run and let us know using the form we will send to you
Unfortunately we must leave this question for you to answer using the systems and processes for your OM field. Ideally people can give online if you can set it up and most finance teams will have dealt with this question before
Some ideas… run on a running track where you know the distance, use a smart phone app (e.g. Runtastic) to measure accurately, borrow a measuring wheel, use a car to measure on a road, just guess – we are not too strict!
We will send you a return form by email or click here
Generally yes but let us know if your project falls outside of this and we can look at it
Yes we have logos, sponsor forms and certificates that may be useful – click here
Yes certainly – part of the aims of R4TW are to expand our network and relationships
YES!!! Here are some details from the fields who completed the challenge in 2014
The Field Leader decides to go for SILVER level and chooses to raise money for a feeding project.
She is quite fit but decides to do some training in order to achieve as high a distance as possible knowing that every km she can run in an hour will gain $50.
She personally invites 10 people to run with her and knows they are all capable of running around 8km on average – some will do more and others less.
She invites them all to ask for sponsors and other friends to run. She also invites a friend in another country to organise an event on the same day and they are willing to raise money for the same project expecting about 15 people to attend. In addition she invites two local churches to get involved and they think they can attract another 15 people to run and raise money.
On the day she runs 9km. They raise $1,400 from the two events in which 38 people run.
The field leader qualifies for $50 per km and so gains another $450 making a total of $1,850 raised.
