|Join the American Running Association this May 6th to run a mile. On this date fifty four years ago, Roger Bannister ran the first mile under 4 minutes. Your goal can be simple. Get out there and run the mile: four laps on the track, a mile loop around the neighborhood, a run in the park. Make this day a start point for a new effort to run or walk a mile every day. Get others to join you: friends, parents, high school and college teammates, colleagues in the workplace, even your dog. |
American Running is committed to increasing the physical activity level of America's youth and adults through running. It can start with a mile. Walking or running is OK too. It only takes one person to show others that a goal once thought unimaginable is reachable. Roger Bannister showed other elite runners that he was simply the one to open the door for others. You can start a running regimen to inspire others just like Sir Roger.
