Global Running Day

Today is the global running day!

Like every first Wednesday in June, today we celebrate the Global Running Day. Globally celebrated to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle among runners of all ages who share their hobby, with the aim of inspire others to do the same. In the whole world various activities and races are celebrated, even at midnight!

The Global Running Day arises from the National Runner Day in United States, which was originated thanks to the marathon organizers in New York, Boston or Chicago, and together with the USA Track & Field (USATF), which is the governmental organization that regulates the athletics in USA.

Besides, today the Million Kid Run is carried out for the second year in a row, and it seeks gathering a million of compromised kinds in order to run and in that way inspiring them to have a healthy life.

One year ago, the number of runners in the whole world was more than 2.225.000, from 166 countries, who took part in diverse organized activities. We hope this year the participation is even higher and more people get involved!
