I am entirely envious of those who were able to do the Muddy Buddy and those who follow and participate the Rock’n’Roll Marathon Series fervently. Though I wasn’t able to join momentarily, here’s something I can do.
Runners, here’s something interesting for us to co-relate in cyberspace on June 1. Let’s log our mileage online through Competitor.com and reach 500,000 miles in one day to celebrate National Running Day on June 1. Are you in? Although I’m not in the United States, I’m celebrating and definitely logging in!
Runners can also share their personal stories about why they run, and download a virtual badge they can share with friends on their personal Facebook page.
“We’re excited to launch a collective platform for National Running Day where athletes of all abilities can share their dedication to living an active lifestyle,” said Bouker Pool, SVP of Marketing for CGI. “Our goal is to provide an inspiring environment where people are encouraged to hit the pavement and push themselves to new limits. June 1 is a great day to register for a fall event and start training toward your goal.”
For one day only, CGI will offer exclusive registration discounts for its immensely popular Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, TriRock, and Muddy Buddy event series. Those who register for a CGI event on June 1 will receive $26 off a Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon; $13 off a Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon; $10 off a Rock ‘n’ Roll 10k; $5 off a Rock ‘n’ Roll 5k; $20 off a Muddy Buddy; and $20 off a TriRock event.
National Running Day, held annually on the first Wednesday in June, celebrates the passion shared between the more than 49 million people in the U.S. who now run. The endurance sports category has experienced explosive growth over the past year – half-marathons have seen a 24 percent growth rate from 2009 to 2010, while triathlons experienced a 63.7 percent growth rate.
