In 2 days there’s a Global Running Day! Raise your hand if you had no idea that this was even a “thing”… Ok, hopefully it’s not just me!
That said, this looks like a great opportunity to get out and run as well as introducing and motivating other people to do the same. It doesn’t have to be anything big, just running around the block or whatever feels good will do the trick.
We’re looking forward to getting out on Wednesday and maybe even running on a road or sidewalk instead of the trails – a little higher chance of seeing others that way 😉
On June 1, 2016, runners all around the world will celebrate running by doing what we do best- Running! So far more than 1.9 million runners from 155 countries have pledged to participate.
While this event will get runners outside or on the treadmill doing what they love, it has an even greater purpose. Global Running Day is asking for runners to pledge to run on Global Running Day. The event also seeks spread the awareness as a fun, family oriented activity to get more than 1 million kids to run on Global Running Day as well.
According to Global Running Day, “the key is to share your passion for the sport and to inspire others to get moving”. This is an issue of ever growing importance as modern comforts made sedentary lifestyles a commonplace. Join 1.9 Million Runners for Global Running Day – Run Infinity
