Celebrate Global Running Day with us!
This Global Running Day we will mark the occasion with an event to celebrate all of you –our amazing running and walking community. We invite you to join us at The Big Run on June 1 to log some midweek miles. Set a goal, cross that finish line and celebrate Global Running Day with your friends, family and Fleet Feet community!
This year we want to bring awareness to inclusivity to our running community. This is why all proceeds will benefit Ainsley's Angels, Dr. Jesse R. Peel LGBTQ Center at ECU, and others.
