National Running Day – June 5th

National Running Day

National Running Day, held annually on the first Wednesday in June, is a day when runners everywhere declare their passion for running. It is a coast-to-coast celebration of a sport and activity that’s simple, inexpensive, and fun. It’s the perfect way for longtime runners to reaffirm their love of running and for beginners to kick off a lifetime of lifechanging commitment.

Twin Cities in Motion is one of the sponsors of this event. From their site:

Run around the lakes of Minneapolis between 5 – 8:00 p.m. on June 5th and quench your thirst at the TCM Water Stop! We’ll be camped out in our usual water stop spot in the Lake Calhoun Center parking lot on the north side Lake Calhoun, just off the lake path. (Click here for a map.) The TCM team will add to the fun with random giveaways to runners. It’s the perfect kick off to Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon training season – all runners welcome! Stop by while on a run, or just come hang out!
