Today, Wednesday, June 5, is Global Running Day. Is it a made-up holiday? Well maybe, but it is one of the best! Unlike many made-up holidays dedicated to celebrating guilty pleasures, Global Running Day has the purpose of celebrating running and encouraging kids and beginners to try it.

Don’t get us wrong, we recognize and look forward to National Margarita Day, National Pumpkin Pie Day and of course, National Donut Day! And although we aren’t going to buy you a margarita or donuts, we will offer up some sweet discounts on upcoming races!
