Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages people of all ages and abilities to get moving. This day plays an important role, reminding us of the positives that running can offer and the power of unification. During the past two years, many people have turned to running as a solution to help release anxiety, gain perspective, cope with cabin fever, and keep up wellbeing. This year let’s run together on Global Running Day to reflect upon the challenges we’ve faced and how our communities have endured.
So many people complain about children not getting enough exercise, about children being stuck inside, surfing the net or engrossed in TV or a video game, about children being obese and lazy…Well, here’s a chance to do something about it.
From those who run to win races to those who walk, jog or run to improve their health and fitness, physical exercise is extremely important for people of all ages. - Usain Bolt, 8-time Olympic Champion
One of the greatest things about running, which many don’t realize, is the sense of community that comes along with the sport. Contrary to popular belief, it is not a ‘lone-wolf’ activity, not if you don’t want it to be.
It’s not just for physical fitness, but for emotional and mental fitness, and really to be a part of something that is so much bigger than yourself. - Deena Kastor, Olympian & American record holder
It is Global Running Day and whether you want to get fit, raise money for a good cause, or make new friends, joining a running club is a great way to do all three.
This is a great day to invite a nonrunner to take up the sport.
Global Running Day, a time to embrace the joys (and benefits) of the sport and to inspire those around us to, you know, get moving.
It’s what it’s all about…encouraging the next generation to be active and cognizant of their health. - Tiki Barber, Former New York Giants Running Back
Even though many of us have a goal to sweat each day, having one dedicated day to hype up the sport gives many of us a much-needed motivational boost.
Running is an efficient way to combat a lot of problems we could be facing. It’s something anyone can do. - Felipe Lopez, NBA Legend
Global Running Day is a day for all of us to come together and realize how running can transform lives. - Stephanie Bruce, USATF 10K Champion
