Runner is an Arcade minigame that was released to Mineplex on an unknown date. Runner is a fast-paced minigame where blocks fall when you walk or run over them, so you have to keep running. Currently, Runner is only playable at Mixed Arcade or at Mineplex Player Servers.


In Runner, you spawn on the top of a map, with it usually having multiple layers. As the game starts, block will decay under your feet and fall after a second of decaying, forcing you to run around. This will slowly destroy the map, forcing the players to use their abilities and parkour skills to survive. There are multiple layers to walk on in most maps, so you may get a "second chance" to keep playing after you've fallen a level.

As you walk over blocks, they don't disappear; instead, they fall down, either into the deadly thing below, or on another layer, where they disappear. However, the blocks deal damage when they fall on your head, so people who fall a layer down need to watch their heads too!

There are multiple ways to die: you can be hit by a falling block dislodged by a player in the level above you, you can fall off into the Void, water, lava, or anything that kills the player when they die and you can die by fall damage. The last player alive wins the game.

Due to a glitch, you can sometimes take damage from falling blocks as you walk on them.
