Five Ways to Celebrate National Running Day

Hard to believe our (second) favorite day of the year is tomorrow!

National Running Day, held annually on the first Wednesday in June, is a coast-to-coast celebration of running – a day when runners everywhere declare their passion for the sport.

Ready to declare your passion? Here are five ways to celebrate National Running Day this year:


  1. Go for a run:  Morning or evening. On your own or in a group. Two miles or twenty. Whatever the circumstances, you’ve got to get a run in on National Running Day. (It is what the day celebrates, after all!) You could also participate in one of 140+ National Running Day meetups happening across the country.
  2. Join a running group: Running groups are a great way to help you achieve your running goals. Need help finding a group to join? Check out for a list of local running clubs across throughout the US.
  3. Show the world – or us, at least! – how you’re celebrating: Tweet, pin or share a photo of your run with us on social media. You can find us on Twitter, Pinterest and Facebook.
  4. Sign up to run a race: Need a little extra motivation to sign up for your next marathon, half-marathon or 5K? Here it is! (Hint: We hear there’s a pretty cool one coming up in Columbus on October 20 … Register here!)
  5. Make a difference: Did you know that in the last 20 years runners have raised over a billion dollars for great causes in races and events worldwide? Donate to The One Fund Boston. Nominate a Miracle Mile Patient Champion. Whatever you do, make this year’s Running Day count.
