What is Global Running Day?

Global Running Day is a grassroots initiative where people of all abilities and from all paths of life come together to celebrate their passion for running and inspire others to get moving. Global Running Day will celebrate its third edition on Wednesday, 6 June.

Last year nearly 1.3 million people from 187 countries took part, logging in more than 8.2 million miles.
