Let’s celebrate Global Running Day together!


Hello June!


Today is a day dedicated 100% to getting active, and what could be better? As holidays go, Global Running Day has always been our friends at Brooks’ favourite, even if they are a little biased!


While we may not all be able to get together for our parkrun just yet, we can still celebrate the transformative power of the run together.


Join Brooks and your fellow parkrunners from the 2 – 5 June and lace up to walk, jog or run your weekly (not)parkrun to celebrate Global Running Day! Share your #parkrunhappy photos with us on Instagram and Facebook using the hashtag #RunHappyNation. For each hashtag received Brooks will donate £1 to parkrun so we can all continue to #parkrunhappy and help to keep parkrun free, for everyone, forever
