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.

As a sign of participation and to motivate people around them, get people to wear their running shoes to work on June 2nd.

Other Details:

This is a fun run/walk - there are no awards
A clock will be at finish line so you can see your time
Fruit, Gatorade, juice and water provided post event to registered participants
