About National Running Day

National Running Day, held annually on the first Wednesday in June, is a day when runners everywhere declare their passion for running.


Since 2009, the country's foremost running organizations have worked together to celebrate our sport with thousands of participants on the first Wednesday of June. We encourage runners to join in by planning a run, spreading the running bug to a friend, signing up for a race, or setting a new goal.
