***Event Update***

In light of the growing concern regarding COVID-19, we will likely need to make changes to The Big Run event on Global Running Day should we find our federal, state and local officials are still encouraging social distancing in June. The health and safety of the community, and our employees are our top priorities.

While we are actively working on solutions for alternative plans, we will notify you as things change. In the meantime, we are closing registration.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to the Race Director at


On June 3, let’s inspire the runner in everyone. 

2020 marks the fourth year of The Big Run®, our annual nationwide 5K event on Global Running Day. In partnership with Brooks Running, we celebrate our local communities by bringing tens of thousands of runners together to cross a finish line and achieve a goal.


As if the endorphins weren’t enough, we recognize runners of all levels through a fun range of cash prize opportunities totaling over $5,000 that reward speed, participation, and human connection. Click here to learn more. 

Help Us Give Back: Through our charitable arm, Do the Run Thing™, Fleet Feet has partnered with Girls on the Run and its SoleMates program so we can help more girls cross more finish lines. Why? Because everyone benefits when we support our kids. Click here to learn how you can help.
