1. Join The Big Run
Fleet Feet communities across the country traditionally celebrate Global Running Day with their own 5K race, called The Big Run. In 2020, 11,000 participants ran their own virtual races from 5K to a marathon. This year, Fleet Feet stores across the country are back to hosting local The Big Run events, both virtual and in-person.
Want to join? Check with your local Fleet Feet location for their The Big Run event plans. Don't live near a Fleet Feet? Follow Fleet Feet on Instagram and stay tuned for giveaways and more to celebrate Global Running Day!
2. Try a new running route
Variety is the spice of life, and there’s nothing like exploring a new path, road or trail to reignite your love for the sport. Plus, scientists at Carnegie Mellon University report that learning a new route can help develop the area of your brain associated with spatial learning. It also keeps your routine from getting stale.
So, take a lap around a different part of town today, investigate a new trail, or even run your usual loop backwards and see how different things look when you can see them in a new way.
