Victory Run (ビクトリーラン) is a racing game released for the PC Engine and TurboGrafx-16 in late 1987 and 1989, respectively.

Victory Run is based on the Paris-Dakar rally, and uses a third-person perspective derived from the likes of OutRun. As the hardware behind the PC Engine and TurboGrafx-16 cannot scale sprites in real time (unlike OutRun), objects appear "choppy" when moving closer to the player.
