Celebrate Global Running Day with us and all summer long!
Global Running Day is our holiday; a celebration of the activity we love and the sport that brings our community together. We’re inviting all runners and walkers to join us on June 7 to mark the occasion, set a goal and cross the finish line.
Sizzlin' Summer Run Series
We are pleased to offer three weeknight runs in our series throughout the summer. The 5Ks will take place June 7, July 12, and August 9. We will have a one mile kids run at our August race. Each 5K will start at 6:00 pm. The Kids Run will start at 5:30 pm.
Early bird pricing is only $15 per race, and if you register for all three races at the same time, you'll receive a $10 discount! On 5/25 price increases to $20 per race.
Bib pickup will be available at Fleet Fleet Bloomington during normal business hours on the Monday and Tuesday before each race. You can also pick up your bib at Tipton Park before the race on Wednesday from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm.
This year we're excited to announce that all of our The Big Run race participants will be automatically entered into a national drawing to win a $500 Fleet Feet gift card! The national leaderboard on thebigrun.fleetfeet.com will be updated on a rolling basis as events take place across the country from June 7-10.
- SUB 15:00 PRIZE - Two winners randomly selected from this finisher group
- 15:00 - 19:59 PRIZE - Three winners randomly selected from this finisher group

In addition to prizes for race completion, there are also national prizes to participants who post on Instagram:

- FIRST-TIME FINISHER - Based on the honor system, we will select a first-time 5k finisher post
- PARENT POWER - We will award one Thule stroller to a post displaying parent strength.
- SUPPORT SQUAD - We will award one Ragnar Relay team entry to the post featuring a fun group photo or video.

There are no age group awards but all participants will receive a finisher's medal for each race. There is an option to purchase a Run Together cotton unisex t-shirt for The Big Run only - there will not be a t-shirt for the other two races or the kids run.
Help Us Give Back
Through our charitable arm, Do the Run Thing™, Fleet Feet has partnered with Girls on the Run so we can help more girls cross more finish lines. Why? Because everyone benefits when we support our kids. You will have the opportunity to make an optional donation when you register.
Not sure where to start? Join our 5K Training Program and we will get you to the finish line. Or come see us at the store so we can outfit you in the best gear, talk about your goals and make sure you meet them.
100 total participants for each event - this is a FIRM participant limit - we only order enough medals for these participants!
Race will be chip timed by It's Race Time - runners will have a chip start and chip finish time. Thank you to It's Race Time for your generous sponsorship!
