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

2020 is a big year for us! We are teaming up with Matt's Run to Fight Hunger this year to make the Big Run bigger and better!  All of the proceeds for this year will go the Second Harvest Food Bank.  This is the fourth year of The Big Run®, our annual nationwide 5K event on Global Running Day.  Alongside Brooks Running, we celebrate our local communities by bringing tens of thousands of runners together to cross a finish line and achieve a goal.

We have options for everyone - a Road 5K, Trail 5K, and Kid's Dash.  Crazy Running will be on hand to provide childcare for those kids ages 4-14 whose parents want to run the 5K after their kid runs the Kid's Dash.


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 [link back to your prize page - see RunSignup Directions for instructions] to learn more.

Help Us Give Back: We want to support our local community and give back to the Second Harvest Food Bank.  All proceeds from the event will go towards Second Harvest Food Bank and any additional donations would be appreciated.
