4 Ways to Celebrate Global Running Day!
1. TAG US IN YOUR #GLOBALRUNNINGDAY PICTURE TO WIN A FREE REGISTRATION
Tag our Instagram account @sfmarathon with a photo of you running on Global Running Day, June 7. We'll select ONE lucky winner to receive a free registration for any of our September 10th races: 5K, half marathon or full marathon. Remember to include #runsiouxfalls and #globalrunningday. You can't beat free, right? Good luck and happy running!
2. DONATE A DOLLAR PER MILE TO CHARITY
If you need extra motivation to get outside and run today (despite the heat), consider donating $1 per mile to your favorite charity. Once you've donated, tell us what charity you chose and how many miles you donated by posting a story through our #3 option below!
If you'd like an idea of what charity to send your donation to, we suggest Sanford Children's Miracle Network here in Sioux Falls. The hospital is the exclusive Children's Miracle Network Hospital in eastern South Dakota, southwest Minnesota, northwest Iowa and northern Nebraska. 100% of funds raised here stay here to help kids in the region. Send your donation here!
3. SPREAD INSPIRATION
Read from our collection of motivational stories about why runners are choosing to #runsiouxfalls this September with us. If you'd like, consider submitting your own story! Follow this link for submission details and to read the stories. Remember to continue checking this page for more updates and possibly to view your own story if you choose to participate! Check out this excerpt of a story about Paige, a student running for her father who suffers from Polycystic Kidney Disease:
"Essentially, it was an act of God's perfect timing that on the morning of May 14, 2016, the man that I was preparing to run for, my father, was at the same time recovering from a lifesaving transplant surgery. This year, my father will be able to cheer me on from the sidelines and watch me finish the race. The Sioux Falls half-marathon will be my second consecutive race." - Paige Wright
