Happy Global Running Day!
On the first Wednesday of June, runners from around the world celebrate the sport of running by logging miles and inspiring others to join our global community. This Global Running Day, we encourage you to get out there and get after it. From a couple of laps around the block to your local community fun run, pledge your miles and share the reasons why you run using #GlobalRunningDay.

We invite members of the Bank of America Chicago Marathon running community to join our Global Running Day team and pledge your miles at globalrunningday.org.
