This year Global Running Day is Wednesday, June 2nd. What is Global Running Day? “Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. This day plays an important role, reminding us of the positives that running can offer and the power of unification. It’s mission seems more important than ever right now, as people everywhere attempt to stay active and healthy. During these challenging times, many people are turning to running as a solution to help release anxiety, gain perspective, cope with cabin fever, and keep up wellbeing.
Our physical Global Running Day events may be paused, but it’s important that we all keep active in a safe and responsible way. This year, Global Running Day 2021 will be digitally uniting people across the world in a global effort to encourage physical wellness and strengthen community.” (Source: https://globalrunningday.org/)
On Wednesday I am planning to do a speed workout for a total of about 6 miles. I am excited but also nervous about it.
What can you do on this day?
👟 Participate in a virtual event. There are many of them taking place so that you can get involved either by running or walking. Below are the events listed on the Global Running Day website. If any of these aren’t your thing, you can submit an event and others can sign up.
👟Sign up for a race. Run Rock and Roll Marathon Series is having a 24 hour sale. There will be races in various U.S. cities as well as in other countries. You can pick from a 1 mile, 5k, half marathon, or marathon.
👟 Do your own thing. Just do what I am doing and run. Or go for a walk. It may be a day of running but so what if you walk? The most important thing is that you move and enjoy some fresh air.
