Global Running Day: What it is and why you ABSOLUTELY should be a part of it in 2019!

Coach Casey · May 27, 2019

On June 5th, the entire running community will be gathering for one epic day of running to celebrate our favorite activity! 100 countries and over 4,000 dedicated runners (and counting) will be getting their miles in together for 24 hours of fun, sweat, and fitness! Global Running Day is upon us!

How do I make the most of Global Running Day???

Runners from all over the world will celebrate Global Running Day (GRD) in a variety of ways. Through community events, local races or running groups, mileage will come in many forms. However, planning to make the most of your Global Running Day can be hard. Whether you prefer to run with a few friends, a larger running group or a virtual network there are a lot of factors. You have to find a convenient time, location, set route, and running partners that match your schedule and ability.

If you want access to a huge, readily available running group, and personalized training, Charge Running is the spot! Charge is a non-stop virtual running community and training guide led by experienced, certified coaches. We offer live, motivationally coached runs, workouts, and races every day. Classes fit your running needs, schedule, and interests. All you need is your phone/Apple Watch and a desire to run!
