“Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. This day plays an important role, reminding us of the positives that running can offer and the power of unification. Its mission seems more important than ever right now, as people everywhere attempt to stay active and healthy. During these challenging times, many people are turning to running as a solution to help release anxiety, gain perspective, cope with cabin fever, and keep up wellbeing.” - Global Running Day website
June 2nd 2021 is Global Running Day and here at mymo we are taking this chance to celebrate everything that running can give to us. Running gives us structure, purpose, freedom, fitness, memories, experiences, relationships and much much more. Running is to be celebrated and we think Global Running Day truly gives us that opportunity.
For many years, Global Running has given runners the chance to celebrate their achievements and meet up in organised events together, but due to ongoing changing Covid 19 restrictions all over the world, this year’s Global Running Day offers the opportunity to take part virtually instead. There are stacks of fantastic opportunities on the Global Running Day website that will give you the chance to take part in something exciting, linking you virtually to thousands of runners across the World. There are events from a virtual mile to a week-long event, and you can easily add your pledge to take part and leave your mark on the Global Running Day page.
If you can’t take part in a virtual race at the moment, it’s a great time to share your favourite running memories and celebrate your achievements, whether that’s miles covered, cities visited, personal bests smashed. Add and search the tag #GlobalRunningDay2021 to your social media channels today and spread the love. Don’t forget to use #mymorunning in your posts so we can share your glory!
What’s your favourite thing about running? What has running given back to you?
What does your running week look like? What goals are you training for? Do you mix your miles up with some easy, steady and tempo sessions?
How often do you go running without a watch? Do you go out and just 'run to feel'? This is usually a topical debate amongst runners so here, we take a look at the great watch debate!
