The Big Run 2017 Event Photos

Ever wonder how you stack up against runners around the nation? Join us for The Big Run, a race run by other Fleet Feet Sports on the same day.  Be sure to check back on race day to see your times in the national leaderboard!

What's the Deal?

On June 7 (Global Running Day!), 40 Fleet Feet Sports locations nationwide will do something never done before by our brand—hold a nationally-coordinated 5K race in different locations all on the same day!

What's at Stake?

Every participant gets a t-shirt. Every finisher gets a medal and a ticket to the after party with live music from the Delicious Fishes! And at the end of the day, all results will funnel up into a national leaderboard to determine the answers to questions like: Who is the fastest runner in the country? Which community has the  fastest average 5K time? AND SUPER COOL PRIZES WILL BE GIVEN!

Running together rocks, and we want to celebrate that!
