Today's Reason to Celebrate

June 02, 2021 was

Global Running Day

Today is Global Running Day! Every year on the first Wednesday of June, runners everywhere celebrate their love for this age-old sport. Did you know that running was the most important athletic event during the first Olympic games in 776 BC? A cook named Koroibos won the 200-yard “stadium race.” He was crowned with an olive wreath.

Check out the offical Global Running Day website to learn how you can celebrate the occasion. You can find out about the virtual Running Day events going on in your community, and learn how you can participate! 

To celebrate National Running Day, go out for a run on your own or with a friend. Ready? Set? Run!
