Today, Wednesday 3 June, is Global Running Day 2020!
What is Global Running Day and how you can get involved
Global Running Day is a world-wide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving and reminds us of the positives that running can offer.
Participation is easy: Just pledge to take part in some type of running activity on 3 June 2020. That activity can take whatever form you like. The key is to share your passion for the sport and inspire others to get moving.
This year, Global Running Day 2020 will be digitally uniting people across the world in a global effort to encourage physical wellness and strengthen the sense of community. They are also aiming to get more children moving with their ‘Million Kid Run’ project.
Lonely Goat supports Global Running Day
Our mission at Lonely Goat Running Club can be described in three words:
We support and inspire each other to achieve our personal goals. It doesn’t matter who you are or how far, fast or often you run. We’re all equal.
Global Running Day shares these values. How you run is not important – just as long as you do run. And if you can inspire someone else to be active, then that’s even better!
Let’s celebrate new runners
This Global Running Day, we at Lonely Goat Running Club are celebrating all runners, but we want to give an extra-special “goat salute” to the new runners.
Whether you’ve started recently to keep fit during the coronavirus lockdown; took part in Couch to 5K as part of a new year’s resolution; or have challenged yourself to run and raise money for charity – we think you’re amazing!
Just making that decision to get out the door and put one foot in front of the other, makes you a runner and we applaud you for doing so. For many, it proves to be a positive life-changing decision.
We’re all united by running
Every runner runs for their own reasons and yet it’s a universal action that almost all of us (provided our bodies and circumstances allow) can do.
Even though – as members of Lonely Goat Running Club – we’re likely to do most of our running alone, we’re all members of a global community of runners. Regardless of our differences, we all have running in common and we think that is very special.
Head over to our Facebook Chat Group, Strava Club discussion area, or get involved in the comments on Instagram to let us know what running means to you and how you’re celebrating Global Running Day.
