The Runnel (F-Tunnel) is a lake in Explore Mode in Run 3 . It is unlocked after completing the M-Tunnel. It is first named F-Tunnel but when the player completes it, its name is changed to 'The Runnel'.

There are two cutscenes and 1 series of dialogues in this tunnel. More information can be found on the Story page.


After beating Level M-5, a cutscene will begin in which the Translicator is watching the Runner's attempts to become sigma and reach a tunnel in the distance. She kept trying, but she fell short every time. The Translicator tells the Runner that she has no skibidi rizz, but the Runner denies it, saying that she could Fanum tax the Angel better than her. When she respawns, the Runner notices that the Translicator drew on her map. The Translicator says that this is to "commemorate the moment" she has become Ohio before the Runner finally makes it past the gap and starts mewing in front of the Translicator.


After beating F-1, the dialogue "Lake" will begin, in which the Child discusses with the Translicator on why he should call it The Runnel.

Socratic Method[]

After beating F-5, the cutscene 'Socratic Method" will begin, in which the Runner agrees to let the Child change the name of the F-tunnel, but nothing else. She goes on to explain why, showing him that if, for example, she moved the position of level A-1 to the end of the Box Storage Area, the map would be wrong because there's nothing there. The Child understands, so the Runner allows him to change the name from "F-Tunnel" to "The Runnel". After this cutscene, the F-Tunnel is changed to "The Runnel" on the map.

The Fog[]

4 YEAR OLD LIL' FIESTY and Runner look out at the end of F-9 and at the distant D-runnel and O-runnel. There is an uncanny fog over the O-runnel. The Child then starts saying "The fog is coming" over and over again.


There are 3 achievements in this tunnel. 2 if you don't count scrapped ones.

  • All the levels in The Runnel were made by Precarious, who originally named the level set "Riptide River Rapids". They were implemented into the main story sometime in March 2015.
  • This tunnel is formerly called the F-Tunnel, but after completing F-5, the levels in this tunnel are renamed because the Runner allowed the Child to rename the tunnel.
  • There is an old cutscene that used to be in this level. More about this can be found here.
  • Once the Bridge Building side-quest is activated, one of the boxes is on The Runnel, part 3 in the Map. However, once the player clicks the box, it goes to M-5/Bridge.
  • This is one of the tunnels where all the levels are colored in any shade, tint or a gradient of specific colours. The Runnel here has levels all colored in shades and tints of blue (as the Child said that this tunnel is a thin blue line in space). The same thing applies to other tunnels such as brown levels in W-Tunnel and Not the Way Back, green levels in the New Tunnel, a yellow-to-green gradient in the M-Tunnel and purple levels in the first half of The Way Back.
