For the third year, Fleet Feet Jackson and Brooks will come together on Wednesday, June 5 to host The Big Run. The annual nationwide 5K brings thousands of runners together on Global Running Day to do what we love most — run. The Big Run starts at 6 p.m. at The Township at Colony Park in Ridgeland, Mississippi.
All Big Run event participants receive a custom finisher’s medal, race t-shirt, and race day bib. Big Run registration is $25 and is open online HERE!
Last year, 16,000 runners across the nation logged 25,000 miles at more than 100 events in more than 20 states. Help us top that number this year! All results from certified, timed 5K races will funnel into a national leaderboard to determine the overall male and female winners as well as the fastest runners in each age group. Those winners will receive cash prizes.
But it's not just about winning—check out the unique awards:
● Common Ground: Finish with the most common finish time for The Big Run, and we'll enter you into a drawing for something BIG!
● Middle of the Pack: We'll recognize the male and female who finish in the exact middle of all The Big Run results.
● Social Butterflies: We'll thank the two people with the most-engaged social media posts from The Big Run with some pretty sweet prizes. Include #thebigrun, @brooksrunning and @fleetfeetsports in the post to be eligible.
