Be a part of something big.  For the third year, Fleet Feet and Brooks will come together on June 5 to host The Big run.  The annual nationwide 5k brings thousands of runners together on Global Running Day to do what we love most--run.

Last year, 16,000 runners logged 25,000 miles at more than 100 events in more than 20 states.  Help us top that number this year.  Why?  Because we want to bring running to more communities; we want more people to set goals and meet them; we want more people to experience that feeling of accomplishment as they cross the finish line.

Because running changes everything.

We want to see the whole community participate because, seriously, running together rocks. Let us recap the ways: 

  • You get to join Fleet Feet Sports communities across the country participating in a nationally-coordinated event in different locations all on the same day.
  • It's on a Wednesday—who couldn't use a mid-week pump-up?
  • We know some people. And some pretty cool brands (cough, cough, Brooks). Let's just say, we're planning some fun raffle giveaways and category prizes.
