On June 2, let’s inspire the runner in everyone.

2020 was a tough one for all of us, so we are going big with our first live event being The Big Run on Global Running Day! 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.  We celebrate our local communities by bringing tens of thousands of runners together to cross a finish line and achieve a goal.

We will be following Trivium Racing's Covid Precautions, that you can read here 

We have options for everyone - a Road 5K, Trail 5K, and 1 Mile Fun Run aimed for kids who are not yet ready to run a 5K. Note medals will be given to the first 250 participants.


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.

Stay inspired:

About Matt's Run to Fight Hunger: Matt’s Run to Fight Hunger originated to celebrate Matt Ketterman’s 23-year running streak of not missing a day.  Yes, that is 8,700 days in a row.  While Matt retired his streak due to surgery in 2015, his passion for feeding hungry families continues.  Second Harvest Food Bank has been the recipient of thousands of meals due to the generosity of those of you in the running community!
