Race Information

This annual collaboration has Fleet Feet and Brooks coming together to host The Big Run. The nationwide 5K brings thousands of runners together on Global Running Day to do what we love most - run. Last year, 16,000 runners logged 25,000 miles at more than 100 events in more than 20 states. Help top that number this year!

All results from certified, timed 5K races will funnel into a national leader board to determine the overall male and female winners as well as the fastest runners in each age group. Winners will receive cash prizes. But it's not just about winning - they will also recognize other runners with unique awards, including:

- Common Ground: Finish with the most common finish time for The Big Run, and you will be entered into a drawing for something BIG!

- Middle of the Pack: they'll recognize the male and female who finish in the exact middle of all The Big Run results.

- Social Butterflies: they'll thank the two people with the most-engaged social media posts from The Big Run with some pretty sweet prizes. 

The post-run picnic food will be provided by your friends at Fleet Feet Pittsburgh!
