Running Man (Korean: 런닝맨) is a South Korean variety show, forming part of SBS's Good Sunday lineup. It first aired on July 11, 2010.
Running Man was classified as an "urban action variety"; a genre of variety shows in an urban environment. The MCs and guests were to complete missions at a landmark to win the race. The show has since shifted to a more familiar reality-variety show concept focused on games. It has garnered attention as being the comeback program for Yoo Jae-suk, the main MC of the program, after leaving Good Sunday's Family Outing in February 2010.
The show has become popular in other parts of Asia, and has gained online popularity among Hallyu fans, having been fansubbed into some languages by international audiences, such as English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese, Malay, Indonesian, Burmese, Arabic, Russian, Turkish and Filipino.
The show has made it to the list of Business Insider's 20 TV Shows of 2016.

Running Man previously aired at 6:25 pm KST on Sundays, as the second part of Good Sunday, airing after Flower Crew, competing against KBS2's 1 Night 2 Days and MBC's Secretly Greatly.
