On June 1, 2016, people everywhere will celebrate the joys of running. You can be a part of Global Running Day!
We invite you to make the pledge to run on Global Running Day, spread the word, and join in the worldwide fitness fun! Participation is easy—just pledge to take part in some type of running activity on June 1, 2016. It can be a solo lap around the block, a long run with friends, or even a game of tag with your kids.
And speaking of kids, the first-ever Million Kid Run on Global Running Day aims to get young people moving. The goal is to have a million kids around the world pledge to run on June 1, 2016. The Million Kid Run is about making fitness fun and inspiring kids to embrace running as a way to get healthy and fit.
