Today is Global Running Day!
Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go—what’s important is that you take part, and how you do it is up to you. Run a lap around your block, take your dog for a long walk, or call your friends for a pick-up game in the park. The important thing is that you have fun being active—and you inspire others to join you.
There are so many great and easy ways to get involved:
- You can make a pledge, either as an individual or as part of a group or team
- You can specify your inspiration – ours is the human-canine bond!
- You can join a NYRR virtual race – so you can participate no matter where you are
- You can find local events near you and meet other wonderful people – like this NYRR Open Run in Brooklyn Bridge Park
No matter which way you choose to participate, take steps towards a more active and healthy lifestyle. Get up and DogGo!
