Global Running Day

June 6, 2018

Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go—what’s important is that you take part, and how you do it is up to you. Run a lap around your block, take your dog for a long walk, or call your friends for a pick-up game in the park. The important thing is that you have fun being active—and you inspire others to join you.

Bergen Runners participated in the Global Running Day and pledged to run 259 miles on this special day.  We ran around the clock:  some woke up at the crack of dawn and ran; others squeezed in a run over their lunch breaks; still many ran after a long day of work.  As a group, we tallied an impressive total distance of 337.54 miles which is equivalent to 12.88 marathons! What an inspiring day that motivated all of us to run, regardless where and when we ran!
