On Wednesday, June 6, we are celebrating Global Running Day by inviting the entire city to join us for a run because we believe the best sport in the world is done best as a community!  And when better to celebrate our most favorite activity then on Global Running Day with one Big Run!  Check out the details below:

  • Our friends and partners in Cincinnati running, the Flying Pig Marathon are joining us
  • Other Fleet Feet Sports stores nationwide will also host a fun run or 5K race in their communities in a coordinated effort to create the biggest run ever in different locations all across the country on the same day - we think that is pretty cool!

Last year, 12,000 runners across the country participated in the first-ever Fleet Feet nationwide 5K on Global Running Day.  In 2018, The Big Run is back and bigger than ever.

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. 

And since this is Fleet Feet, and we celebrate and welcome runners of all abilities and levels, we will also recognize runners with some truly unique awards.

  • Social butterflies: Any participants who post a photo from The Big Run and includes #TheBigRun @FleetFeetSports@BrooksRunning, is eligible to win one of three pairs of exclusive, The Big Run custom Goodrs, provided by Brooks!
