Celebrate Global Running Day!
with Run Minnesota

Date: Wednesday, June 5th
All Day Run-a-thon: 7:30 A.M. - 7:30 P.M.
Brief Program: 6 P.M.
Location: Twin Cities Motion Center

Run with the world! Global Running Day is a day for people around the world to celebrate the joys of running.

In St. Paul, Twin Cities In Motion and Run Minnesota will be celebrating with an all day run-a-thon! Join us any time of the day as we run/walk and move our way around a 5K loop by the TCM office (paved pedestrian trails). Please check-in at the Twin Cities Motion Center upon arrival. At any given time, there will be folks out on the loop. This is an untimed, casual 5K loop - walkers, kids, and strollers are welcome. Do as many loops as you'd like!

Collectively, our goal is to complete 261 miles in recognition of the number assigned to Kathrine Switzer, the first woman to run the Boston Marathon as an officially registered competitor. Do as many miles/loops as you'd like - every mile counts! All participants finishing the 5K loop will be entered into drawings for prizes.

 

Note: this is Global Running Day, but all are welcome - run/walk/dance the day away! And, we're certainly looking for people to cheer on the 5K loopers, too!

Minneapolis and St. Paul have been selected to receive a 'Runner Friendly Community Award' from the Road Runners Club of America. The presentation of this award will happen at 6pm with remarks from city leaders and leaders in the local running community.


Following the program, all interested attendees are invited to complete a final lap of the 5K.
