On June 2, let’s inspire the runner in everyone.
2021 marks the fifth year of The Big Run®, our annual 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.
Why? Because RUNNING CHANGES EVERYTHING™. At Fleet Feet we believe in all people and all paces. Where EVERYONE means EVERYONE.
Help Us Give Back: The Big Run Roanoke benefits Project Forward, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that was founded in August 2015 by Robin and Blaine Lewis, owners of Fleet Feet Roanoke. Project Forward's mission is to allow the citizens of Roanoke to have access to good shoes and a means to move, ultimately creating a happier and healthier community.
