The Jagex Clan Cup is an annual competition hosted by Jagex, and occasionally players on their behalf, that brings clans together to battle it out in a series of challenges.

Winners of the most recent Clan Cup are added to the Clan Cup plaque in-game, and may also receive additional awards such as custom logos in clan citadels and on clan vexillums. In recent years, rewards have also included bonds and signed artwork.

Festivals[edit | edit source]

Ire of Phyrrys Festival[edit | edit source]

The Ire of Phyrrys Festival was a forum community event ran between 22 September and 25 September 2010 in order to celebrate the longest month in the Gielinor calendar (the 8th month). It featured various skilling and combat activities, which included duelling and games of Castle Wars.

RuneScape Summer Festival[edit | edit source]

The RuneScape Summer Festival was a festival that was held on the weekend of 4 July 2010. It was comprised of four events, including a costume competition, the opening parade for the Jagex Clan Cup 2010, a Triumvirate challenge, and a summer party.
