Hunters & Runners is a racing game created by MinecraftYoshi26 in 2013. The Hunters must kill the Runner(s) in a specified time limit with clues that come at interval from the moderator of the game. The game's popularity has dropped significantly with the introduction of much more connectivity between towns, resulting in it being replaced de facto by games such as The Runner, Bounty Hunters, and Get to X.

Several iterations of the game have occurred, such as Hunters & Runners: Pairs, where a team of two start in different locations, and if they meet up, ten minutes is taken off the time. Hunters & Runners: Secret Operations gives the runner a secret task that if completed takes ten minutes off of their time.
