Global Running Day is organised by the New York Road Runners and has been set up as a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go—all that matters is that you take part, and how you do it is up to you. Over 180,000 people across the world have pledged to run to support Global Running Day aiming to inspire one million children to go for a run. This year, members of our team at Sports Tours International pledged to get their trainers on and run 5km! You can make your own pledge by clicking here.
Why we love running
We believe that running is for everyone and that it is a fantastic way of helping people lead active lifestyles. The physical benefits of running are obvious but running also helps improve mental wellbeing and it can be a great social activity which can create new friendships and social bonds.
Whether you are at the start of your running journey or you are a running veteran, we want you to be part of our running community. We want individuals, groups and businesses to join us as we strive to create the world’s largest active lifestyle community.
“For the last 45 years Sports Tours International has committed to create the world’s largest active lifestyle community. Our running events in the UK, international cycling challenges & sportives, worldwide marathons, leisure and adventure pursuits along with the world’s leading active lifestyle and sport resort Club La Santa combine to inspire over 50,000 people every year to get active. To our first time 5K runners, New York Marathon finishers and everyone in between we wish you a Happy Global Running Day.”
Chris Bird, CEO of Sports Tours International
