What is Global Running Day?

Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of the joys of running that’s free and open to everyone, everywhere. You don’t have to run far or fast! Just stand up and move—play tag with your kids, walk around the block or your local park, plan a jaunt with friends. The key is to share your passion, sweat a bit, and inspire others.

Million Kid Run

The Million Kid Run is about making fitness fun and inspiring kids to embrace running as a way to get healthy and fit.
