Organised by the New York Road Runners, the annual event was founded in 2009 as a National Running Day in the United States, and has evolved into a global movement in 2016. Last year, over 18,000 runners around the world have participated in this event.
According to globalrunningday.org, the virtual event “plays an important role, reminding us of the positives that running can offer and the power of unification.”
With COVID-19 still affecting lives around the world, the global event on 3 June could not be more overly emphasised, as countries are about to reopen from lockdowns and movement restrictions, as well as people dealing with mental health and wellbeing issues.
