The Big Run will take place at Fleet Feet Sports locations nationwide on June 7, and locally will take place in Boulder. The Big Run allows runners from across the country to compete against each other while also unifying the efforts of running communities in different locations behind one event. Sponsored nationally by Brooks, The Big Run coincides with the annual Global Running Day initiative and is open to runners of all levels and abilities.
All participating stores will funnel the results from its local 5K up into a national leaderboard on fleetfeetsports.com to determine the fastest overall participants in the country. Fleet Feet will award prizes in a variety of categories, including the top three males and females, as well as recognize runners in a variety of ways through social media and raffle prize opportunities. Each finisher will receive a specially designed medal. Select locations will also have a finish line festival celebration in partnership with Brooks.
Online registration for each local 5K opens up on March 20, the first day of spring.
