After setting up an online training platform with training materials, product information and videos, on April 8, Brooks Sports will now organize a virtual global running day. Runners are invited to participate in a “Brooks Global Running Day 5k” between June 3 and 7. Every runner will complete a virtual five-kilometer run in his or her own time. The goal is to cover a total of 40,075 kilometers around the world and so run around the world together. The Global Running Day was organized for the first time in 2016, again on the first Wednesday in June. Runners are also invited to post a photo with their start number under the #findsomerunhappy and #brooksglobalrunningday hashtags on social media platforms. Brooks will assemble some of the photos in a big piece of art that will be on display at Brooks’ headquarters in Seattle. The registration for the Global Running Day on Brooks’ website started on May 27. Taking the place of a former National Running Day that began in the U.S. in 2009, the better known Global Running Day has been held since 2016 annually on the first Wednesday of June with the support of more than 100 organizations. Some 5,000 people from over 100 countries have already pledged to participate in this year’s June 3 edition of the Global Running Day.
