It’s Global Running Day today! For us runners, another day to go running…and this year a chance to make a difference.
Reggae Marathon is proud to be part of Global Running Day. Below email from AIMS President Mr. Paco Borao regarding the global project called “Global Running Day”.
Dear Members, Dear Friends,
AIMS has been invited to participate in a global project called “Global Running Day”. This event, which has been held annually on the first Wednesday in June, is a day for people around the world to celebrate the joys of running. It is a worldwide celebration of the sport, and a way for runners of all ages and abilities to share their passion for running and inspire others to get moving. The Million Kid Run on Global Running Day aims to get young people moving. The goal is to have a million kids around the world pledge to run on 1 June, 2016. The Million Kid Run is about making fitness fun, and inspiring kids to embrace running as a way to get healthy and fit. Global Running Day is a collaborative effort of the most prominent running organizations around the world, with many of the top professional runners helping to share their passion for the sport with the global running community.
As we are a Global Running Organization that includes members from all around the world we have been invited to take part in this initiative in order to promote running among children.
If you wish to take part of the Global Running Day please follow the instructions given by the Organizers:
