On June 6, Fleet Feet locations nationwide, in partnership with Brooks and Nuun, will hold one of two 5K events:

  • a (super) fun run;
  • or a certified, timed 5K race, the results of which will funnel up into a national leaderboard to determine and reward the overall fastest runners and age groupers in the country with some pretty cool cash prizes.
