Last year, 12,000 runners across the country participated in the first-ever Fleet Feet nationwide 5K, The Big Run, on Global Running Day.
In 2018, The Big Run is back and bigger than ever.
On June 6, Fleet Feet locations nationwide, in partnership with Brooks and Nuun, will hold one of two 5K events: either a (super) fun run or a certified, timed 5K race.
All results from certified, timed 5K races will funnel up into a national leaderboard to determine and reward the overall fastest runners and age groupers in the country with some pretty cool cash prizes. And since this is Fleet Feet, and we celebrate and welcome runners of all abilities and levels, we will also recognize runners with some truly unique awards, including:
● Common Ground: Finish at the most common finish time for The Big Run, and we’ll enter you into a drawing for something BIG!
● Middle of the Pack: We’ll recognize the male and female who finish in the exact middle of all The Big Run results.
● Social Butterflies: We’ll thank the two people with the most-engaged social media posts from The Big Run with some pretty sweet.
Curious to check out last year’s event? Search #thebigrun on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to see how our epic coast-to-coast running community celebrated at The Big Run.
