On Wednesday, June 3rd runners all over the country will unite for their love of running. For the past six years, running enthusiasts and all sorts of athletes from across the nation have used this day — National Running Day — for group runs and gatherings. Now everyone knows that the Corn Fed family is filled with all sorts of athletes and a majority of them are “runners,” but the reality is that whether we’re training for a 5k, 10k, marathons, or obstacle course race (OCR), running is always part of our repertoire.
A little birdy recently told us that Kevin Jones, founder of the Crazy Muddy Muckers, challenged us to a friendly running competition in honor of National Running Day. We can’t name a Corn Fed that doesn’t truly enjoy a bit of friendly competition! What’s needed? Super-simple. We need you to get off the couches or seating preference of choice and hit the pavement running. More importantly, we need you to log your miles in the form below. Not kidding. It’s that simple. We don’t care if you run 1 mile, 10, 20 ;). Just get out and run, have fun, and represent in true Corn Fed style.
Running has always been known as a solo sport, something that people trained on their own. National Running Day is a great opportunity to emphasize the camaraderie as well as share the love of the sport with newbies and veterans alike. Now if that doesn’t sound like a Corn Fed call to arms, I don’t know what is ;).
See everyone on the trails this Wednesday, June 3rd and remember to LOG YOUR MILES! Can I get a CORN FED!
