On June 3 2020, we will celebrate Global Running Day.
Yes, race day will look different. But our mission remains the same: inspire the runner in everyone. Races have been cancelled, plans derailed, and we are all adjusting to new normals.
One this is for sure - running is NOT cancelled.
With that in mind, and in partnership with Fleet Feet Roanoke and Brooks Running, we are making a few changes to The Big Run that we have known and loved for the past four years. Join us for My Big Run Roanoke.
Entry is only $10, and $8 from your entry will be donated directly to Project Forward when you select Roanoke as your home store.
This is our ONLY yearly fundraiser for Project Forward, so we appreciate your participation in My Big Run. Your support will help purchase shoes for needy feet in the Roanoke Valley. Learn more about us at www.fleetfeetroanoke.com/projectforward

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out firstname.lastname@example.org.
On June 3, let’s inspire the runner in everyone.
2020 marks the fourth year of The Big Run®, our annual nationwide 5K event on Global Running Day. In partnership with Brooks Running, we celebrate our local communities by bringing tens of thousands of runners together to cross a finish line and achieve a goal.
Why? Because RUNNING CHANGES EVERYTHING™.
As if the endorphins weren’t enough, we recognize runners of all levels through a fun range of cash prize opportunities totaling over $5,000 that reward speed, participation, and human connection. Scroll down to learn more.
