Welcome to another edition of Tuesday Topics! This week’s topic is all about Global Running Day.
Global Running Day is like an unofficial holiday for runners. It’s the one day out of the year where we all come together as a community and log miles. For me it’s also a day where I appreciate how much running has given me – fitness and endurance, confidence, great friends, travel experiences and a sense of community. For someone that hated running as a kid, it still amazes me how much I enjoy it now.
This year I’m doing something a little different. I’m running a relay leg in the 2020 Global 24 Hour Relay Virtual Race.
Here’s how it works: On June 3rd be a part of a relay race with runners from all over the world. Each relay team will run from 12:00am to 11:59pm and virtually hand off the baton to the next runner every 30 minutes. All runners will receive a medal and t-shirt which will be mailed out at the end of June. When it’s your turn, you’ll receive a message from your teammate who just finished, run or walk your leg, and send a message to the next runner on your team to start their turn.
There are teams for many cities including San Diego, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Miami, Denver and many more. I’ll be running for the Chicago team. I figured that while I can’t make my annual trip to the city, I can run virtually for one of my favorite cities! In addition, each participant gets a medal and t-shirt.
This should be a really fun event and I’m looking forward to seeing all the images on social medal.
Tell me: How will you celebrate Global Running Day?
