Community events, including competitions, allow players to engage in a variety of activities with each other. Depending on the event, rewards may be available including in-game items and experience or real-life prizes.
Jagex Clan Cup
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.

Jagex Moderator Events are a type of regular, usually weekly, events ran by Jagex Moderators. They are community events that have no impact on the main game, and are held usually for around an hour. The events are started by a JMod placing down a lodestone in a specific world, allowing anyone in that world to teleport there using the Lodestone Network.

Double XP Weekends allow players to gain double experience from actions in RuneScape for a period of 72 hours. They are ran across a weekend, and usually happen at least once a year. The most recent Double XP Weekend was in May 2017.
