Global Running Day: How to Celebrate in Oklahoma

Happy #GlobalRunningDay! A day to celebrate the sport we love.  And it’s been proven – running brings us not only physical health and mental clarity, but increased creativity, better memory, friendships and so much more. Celebrating in Global Running Day is easy – just pledge to take part in some type of running activity on June 1, 2016. It can be a solo lap around the block, a long run with friends, or even a game of tag with your kids.

And speaking of kids, the first-ever 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 June 1, 2016. The Million Kid Run is about making fitness fun and inspiring kids to embrace running as a way to get healthy and fit. After you make your pledge, get your sons, daughters, nieces, nephews, and students to choose their running activities and be a part of something incredible.


Getting involved is easy. Simply visit and commit to run on June 1, 2016. You’ll add your name to the list of runners from all over the world who are coming together to celebrate the sport.

The pledge page is designed for groups and individuals, kids and adults, able-bodied runners and athletes with disabilities. Pledge for yourself and/or your group—then check out the counter to see how many people from all over the planet will be joining you on the big day.
