Description

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 national 5K brings thousands of runners together on Global Running Day to do what we love most - run.  In addition to the National 5K, we are excited to be adding a 10K to our local event for 2019. 

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.  

Oh and did we mention that there will be prizes?  

All results from our certified, timed 5K race (not 10K) will funnel into a national leaderboard to determine the overall male & female winners as well as the fastest runners in each age group.  Those winners will receive cash prizes.  

But it's not just about winning - we will also recognize other runners with unique awards, including:  
- Common Ground:  Finish with the most common finish time (nationally) for the Big Run 5K, and we'll enter you into a drawing for something BIG! 
- Middle of the Pack: We'll recognize the male and female who finish in the exact middle of all The Big Run 5K results.  
- Social Butterflies: We'll thank the two people with the most-engaged social media posts from The Big Run with some pretty sweet prizes.  Includes #thebigrun, @brooksrunning and @fleetfeetsports in the post to be eligible
