NEW YORK, New York (WABC) --Running is an activity so many can participate in and enjoy. And on June 7th, people all over the globe will get moving as part of Global Running Day, a worldwide celebration of the sport.
Once again this year it's all about the Million Kid Run, which seeks to get a million young participants in this amazing worldwide initiative.
You can also pledge to take part - and commit to what you will run on Global Running Day. Pledge registration is open: Tell the New York Road Runners where, when, how far and most importantly why you'll be running on June 7th. It doesn't matter exactly what you choose to do: Run a solo lap around your block, embark on a long run with friends, or play tag with your kids. Just get moving!
Celebrations at the NYRR RunCenter and across the boroughs:
Through June 7th, the New York Road Runners are turning the NYRR RUNCENTER into a Global Running Day headquarters, with pledging stations, giveaways, and special events.
You can also join them at Global Running Day HQ on June 7th itself, for group runs, special guests, and non-stop events throughout the day.
Can't make it to the NYRR RUNCENTER? They'll also take the day's events to parks all over NYC. You can chat with their coaches and staff, and fill up your water bottle at one of their hydration stations across the five boroughs. If you'll be getting moving in the evening, Global Running Day editions of NYRR Open Run will begin at 7:00 p.m. at Astoria Park, Queens; Brooklyn Bridge Park, Brooklyn; Inwood Hill Park, Manhattan; Silver Lake Park, Staten Island; and St. Mary's Park, Bronx.
