Inaugural National Running Day – June 3, 2009

The mission of National Running Day is to designate one national day to promote running as a healthy, easy, and accessible form of exercise.


This initiative aims to:

  • Strengthen a nationwide grassroots movement to get people running.
  • Encourage Americans of all ages and fitness levels to get out and run.

  • As more school physical education programs disappear every day, get kids interested in running as a part of an everyday healthy lifestyle.
  • Inspire children of all ages by exposing them to professional runners who know better than anyone the benefits of running.
  • On June 3, wear your running shoes to work to show your commitment and participation.

You can participate in National Running Day anywhere!  Remember this is an easy and accesible activity. So, go ahead, lace up those shoes and get moving!
