The Big RunReady to run in the biggest Fleet Feet Sports event ever? Welcome to The Big Run!

On June 7, select Fleet Feet Sports locations nationwide will hold a local 5K race. All results will funnel up into a national leaderboard to determine: who is the fastest runner in the country?

But speed isn’t the only thing that counts. We want to see the whole community participate because, seriously, running together rocks. Let us recap the ways:

  • You get to join Fleet Feet Sports communities across the country in doing something we’ve never done before—a nationally-coordinated 5K race taking place in different locations all on the same day.
  • It’s on a Wednesday—who couldn’t use a mid-week pump-up?
  • Every finisher gets a medal. Not just any medal. A very cool, make-your-friends-jealous medal.
  • We know some people. And some pretty cool brands (cough, cough, Brooks). Let’s just say, we’re planning some fun raffle giveaways.

The Big Run coincides with Global Running Day and is open to runners of all levels and abilities.

Packet pick-up is available at Fleet Feet Sports Bloomington from 5 pm – 7 pm on Tuesday before each race

Race Start Time: 6:00 pm

Awards: No age group awards but all participants will receive a finisher’s medal for each race

Race fees: Register by 5/7 and fee is $10 per race / $25 for the series. On 5/8 price increases to $15 per race / $40 for series.

Race will be chip timed by It’s Race Time – runners will have a chip start and chip finish time. Thank you to It’s Race Time for your generous sponsorship!
