In light of the growing concern regarding COVID-19, we are reaching out to let you know we will likely need to make changes to The Big Run event on Global Running Day should we find our federal, state, and local officials are still encouraging social distancing in June. The health and safety of the community, our customers, and our employees are our top priorities.
While we are actively working on solutions for alternative plans, we will notify you as things change. In the meantime, we are closing registration.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Max Schneider at [email protected]
On June 3, let’s inspire the runner in everyone.
2020 marks the fourth year of The Big Run®, our annual nationwide 5K event on Global Running Day. In partnership with Brooks Running, we celebrate our local communities by bringing tens of thousands of runners together to cross a finish line and achieve a goal.
Why? Because RUNNING CHANGES EVERYTHING™.
As if the endorphins weren’t enough, we recognize runners of all levels through a fun range of cash prize opportunities totaling over $5,000 that reward speed, participation, and human connection. Click here [link back to your prize page – see RunSignup Directions for instructions] to learn more.
Help Us Give Back: A portion of all registration fees will be donated to Girls on the Run which promotes the empowerment of girls and to the Virginia Capital Trail Foundation so that we can continue to enjoy the outdoor activities we love.
