We are honored to be partnering with lululemon Jackson on Global Running Day to raise over $3000, 9000+ Meals, for Extra Table! We hope you can join us for 1…or a few of the runs we will be running that day!! Below is some of the information on their Facebook event page
“Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go—what’s important is that you take part, and how you do it is up to you. We have a great option to get you outside on June 5th! The important thing is that you have fun being active—and you inspire others to join you.
13 runs. 13 chances to challenge yourself and make a difference in our community. We will be donating to EatRunMS all day. Our goal is give $3,250 and help Extra Table bring 9,750 meals to families in Mississippi that are in need as we build our run community.
On Global Running Day, we will host 13 runs every hour on the hour from 6am to 6pm. There will be a 1.5 mile option and a 5k option.
For every scheduled run that has at least 10 participants complete a run, lululemon will donate $250 to EatRunMS! (you will also have an opportunity to donate to this organization)
As an added bonus to getting out there to run, meeting new people, and bringing awareness to a great cause… 75 runners to complete the 5k distance at 2 different runs will receive a lululemon run outfit on us!
Food, drinks, music and fun will be provided all day! We can’t wait to see you throughout the day.
Each run will begin on time. If you are late you can just wait until the next hour’s run and cheer with us!
Check here for more details as we get closer to the big day.
We will have sign ups to make sure all 13 runs have at least 10 runners!
Check out eatrunms.org for more information on this amazing cause.”
Also, our friends & sponsor, Fleet Feet Jackson, has graciously offered to donate an $10/ person that runs 2 laps with us during the day and then runs The Big Run at The Township at 6pm that afternoon. You can sign up here for The Big Run!
