The 2008 World Running Target Championships were separate ISSF World Shooting Championships held in Plzeň, the Czech Republic, in October 2008 as a replacement for the lost Olympic status of 10 metre running target. Apart from this event, competitions were also held in 10 metre running target mixed, 50 metre running target and 50 metre running target mixed. The men's and women's regular 10 metre competitions featured the new semifinal and final stages known as medal matches.

Most of the top European shooters, which constitute the majority of the worldwide elite in running target, were present. No shooters from the most successful non-European nation, China, were competing.[1] Russia and Ukraine dominated, winning 19 medals each.
