Looking for the perfect motivation to get up, get out, and exercise with your friends and family? Join millions of people around the world to celebrate Global Running Day, celebrated on the first Wednesday in June.
It is a celebration that encourages people to run as much as they can. But it also emphasizes the importance of leading a more active lifestyle, even if that is simply playing with your children or chasing your dogs. This June 3 celebration is open and free to everyone. Just grab your running shoes, a bottle of water, and move your legs!
WORLD RUNNING DAY ACTIVITIES
Enjoy learning something new about one of your friends while you walk or run with your grandson to the nearest tree. Either way, by taking the time to be thankful and encouraging, you will create memories that will accompany you throughout your life.
No one said you have to run 50 miles or walk 10 times around a track. To make the most of this day, get your friends and neighbors together and plan a community walk or potato sack race. The more you can involve people, the better.
Play sports with your children
Playing sports with your children is not as difficult or complicated as it may seem. Just round up, make sure they have all of their proper gear including water and snacks, then head off to the park or even your own backyard!
WHY WE LOVE GLOBAL OPERATING DAY
Fun for kids
It’s easy for kids to stay indoors, watch TV, or play video games all day. However, it is much more inspiring for them to go out, run and spend time with you!
Running = relationships
By participating in this celebration, you are taking steps to be even closer to your friends and family. Working with others helps not only motivate you, but also bring you closer to your friends and strike up genuine conversations.
There are many global supporters and local vendors in your city who will take part in this momentous occasion. Visit your local stores or parks to find sign-up sheets for upcoming races, hikes, races, and marathons. By pre-registering for these activities, you can often get a discounted rate instead of paying the full price of registration.
