Ready to run in the biggest Fleet Feet event ever? Welcome to The Big Run!
On June 5, Fleet Feet locations nationwide will hold a local 5K race. All results will funnel up into a national leaderboard to determine: who is the fastest runner in the country?
But speed isn't the only thing that counts. We want to see the whole community participate because, seriously, running together rocks. Let us recap the ways:
The Big Run coincides with Global Running Day and is open to runners of all levels and abilities.
