News featured image 46232

Run this free one-mile virtual race anywhere, anytime as the running community comes together on

Between 28 May-7 June lace up your shoes and run the world with thousands of other participants in celebration of a day that encourages everyone to get moving. You can also choose to run together with people across the globe with the Global Running Day #Run1Tag1 challenge.

After you complete your mile virtual race, tag a friend on social media with #Run1Tag1 to encourage them to do the same. Together we’ll create a worldwide game of virtual tag. Keep active in a safe and responsible way as we continue to #runsafe in a global effort to support and strengthen the running community. Although we’re running separate routes, we’re all in this together to stay connected and healthy.
