I always try to do something within my local running community for Global Running Day each June - Whether it’s joining a group run with my local run club or participating in a virtual race. This year, I heard about the Global Running Day 24 hour virtual relay. Since I am a self-professed Relay Queen, I couldn’t say no!
Here’s how it works:
The relay will take place on June 3, 2020. There are teams across the country in most major cities. Just search for your city, and find a timeslot you like. They are all 30 minutes each. Each person will walk/run for 30 minutes at their assigned time then notify the next runner on the list to “pass the baton”. That’s it! Easy, right?
And yes, there’s swag to be had! Every participant gets a medal and shirt!
You can join any team you want, whether it’s your own town, or spread across the country with friends. You can even create your own team! I’m currently in talks with one of my running clubs to sponsor their own team.
Anyway you choose to celebrate, being part of the running community is the best way!
Learn more and reserve your spot today! Registration ends at 11:59PM on June 1!
All participants will be entered intro drawings for prizes from sponsors including:
25% of proceeds are being donated to the NAACP Legal Defense & Education Fund. If you're interested in donating, check it out here.
