Global Running Day History
Global Running Day encourages all people to go out on the streets or treadmills and run, regardless of pace or for how long. The goal of the holiday is not to be competitive, it is to show activeness, and emphasize the benefits of a jog or a walk. Many activities are promoted during the observance. An example is the “Million Kid Run”, an event that intends to show kids that it is possible to be active and have a lot of fun. Global Running Day occurs every year on the first Wednesday of June.
