There are currently 21 runner levels in Zwift. Everyone begins at level 1, and you move to higher levels by accumulating XP (experience) points.
You can see your current level while running just below your center console which shows speed, distance, run time. Below those numbers there is a progress bar with your current level on the left.
When you level up you will receive a notice in game similar to the image above.
How Do I Get XP (Points)?
Points are added for every 1/4 km (10 XP) or 1/4 mile (15 XP) you run. You will see a small alert to the right of your center console whenever points are added.
Sorry, America: since a kilometer is equal to .621 miles, you will accumulate XP slightly faster if you ride in metric units. (10km=400 XP, while the equivalent mileage, 6.213=372 XP.)
Here is what you unlock at each level, and the number of accumulated XP points needed to level up.
