Global Running Day Competition

Did you know the first Wednesday of June is Global Running Day? Wednesday 7th June 2023 marks a very special day in the running calendar, one where we would like to encourage people of all ages and fitness levels to lace up their running shoes, hit the pavement, trail, or treadmill and embrace the joy of running and promote a healthier lifestyle.

Whether it’s a short jog, a leisurely run, or a challenging race, the important thing is to get your body moving! Global Running Day is a reminder that running is accessible to all, regardless of age, background, or fitness level!

To celebrate this day, we are giving three (3) lucky runners the chance to win two (2) entries into one of our AJ Bell Great Run Series events this year!
