Recognized annually since 2009, Global Running Day celebrates the sport of running or jogging. This day functions to remind everyone worldwide about the benefits of maintaining an active lifestyle and the power of unification through physical activity. In the midst of this pandemic, individuals are using running as an escape to help release anxiety, gain perspective, cope with cabin fever, and maintain some sort of routine.

As with most events for the time being, this year’s Global Running Day will be going digital. However, the message of uniting communities to promote physical wellness remain the same. From novice runners to seasoned marathoners, the Run 1 Tag 1 virtual challenge is a great place to start. This movement invites participants to run one mile or complete an at-home exercise for someone that inspires them and then tagging another to do the same.

If you’re looking to make running a part of your regimen or on the hunt for new gear, we’ve listed some great products below. Not only are they specifically designed for runners, but they’re stylish, comfortable and long-lasting.
