Celebrate Global Running Day with us!
On June 7th, We Run Together.
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 7th to mark the occasion, set a goal and cross the finish line.
This year, we partner with Michelob ULTRA to host The Big Run 5K Fun Run. The run will take place from the store, and we'll celebrate afterwards with a post-run party. The event is limited to 100 participants, so don't wait too long to sign up!
All registered runners/walkers will get a t-shirt and medal. We're also excited to work with our local and national sponsors for this event to offer raffle prizes and some goodies at the post-race party!
NEW FOR THIS YEAR: We are offering a 5K Training Program presented by Brooks in order to train and prepare for The Big Run on June 7! See details below in The Big Run 5K Training Program section.
The Big Run 5K is a FUN RUN ONLY. That means the run will be UNTIMED and not an official chip-timed race. The run will be in-person only, so no virtual option is available. The event will be limited to 100 participants, so don't wait to sign up! All participants will receive a Big Run t-shirt and a medal. Registration is required for those wanting to participate and can be done so online. It's a great opportunity to meet other runners in the community and celebrate. Bring the whole family or your furry friend...either way we'll have fun together!
