Be sure to read our Runner Safety tips before you lace up and head out!

What is Global Running Day

What People Are Saying

  • 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. New York Times
  • 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. Thrive Global
  • 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
  • This is a great day to invite a nonrunner to take up the sport. Runners World
  • 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 Irish Examiner
