If you forgot to put it on the calendar, June 7 is Global Running Day, and as we are mostly a day ahead of every one here in Fiji, we are doing ours on Thursday 8th to be running at same time as every one else 🙂
Over two million runners from across the globe, in 164 countries, have pledged to get up, get out, and go for a run. Don’t worry if you haven’t made plans yet, just come along to our normal Thursday Social Run.
This is a great day to invite a nonrunner to take up the sport. Suva Marathon Club’s Thursday Social Run is perfect starting point for people of all ages and abilities.
Any run counts, but if a solo run isn’t your idea of a celebration, then look no further!
WHAT IS GLOBAL RUNNING DAY?
Global Running Day is a day for people around the world to celebrate the joys of running. Participation is easy—just pledge to take part in some type of running activity on June 7, 2017 (or June 8th here in Suva at our weekly Social Run!).
It can be a solo lap around the block, a long run with friends, or even a game of tag with your kids. The key is to share your passion for the sport and inspire others to get moving.
Combine it with #MyMile
Tell the story of your run with #MyMile on Strava. The perfect lines of the local track, a group selfie of you and your mile crew, your big ice cream reward for your equally big effort – #MyMile is how Strava athletes are sharing the personality of their run.
The Strava Mile: Run your best mile in June and share your story with #MyMile
All you need for this one is guts. Just about any runner can get through a mile. But it takes courage to toe the line and go for a new PR. For a few minutes, you’ll have to believe in yourself with total certainty. You’ll be determined and relentless. You’ll be a badass on the run at top speed. It’s going to burn while you try, but feel amazing when you’re done.
Whatever your time – that’s between you and your mile. The Strava Mile is about bringing all kinds of runners together to celebrate a big, bold effort and smash a few (million) PRs, and we want you in.
It’s free. It’s simple. It’s for anyone with the guts to try. Join us.
