Fleet Feet, the local retail leader in building and supporting the Murfreesboro running community, will participate in the brand's nationally coordinated running event, The Big Run, in celebration of Global Running Day on June 6. This year's event consists of more than 90 running events taking place throughout the day on June 6 across 30 states. Last year, more than 12,000 people participated across the nation in the brand's inaugural event.
Sponsored nationally by Brooks and Nuun, and locally by Murfreesboro Park & Recreation (in support of the Better Boro Project), The Big Run welcomes runners of all ages, levels, and abilities. Stores participate either by holding a timed, certified 5K race or a fun run.
"We are so excited to bring this national event to our local runners," says Krista Dugosh, Owner, Fleet Feet Murfreesboro & Mt. Juliet. "The Murfreesboro running community is growing quickly, and we are thrilled to be able to host this along side Murfreesboro Parks & Rec. Running is what we do!
The results from timed, certified 5K races will funnel up into a national leaderboard to determine the overall fastest runners of the day nationwide, as well as age group winners. Winners receive cash prizes. Fleet Feet and Brooks will also present prizes for unique categories, including:
◘ IN THE MIDDLE OF IT ALL: The male and female who finish in the exact middle of all finishers in the country in their gender receive $500.
