Global Running Day is a worldwide celebration of running that encourages everyone to get moving. It doesn’t matter how fast you run or how far you go—what’s important is that you take part, and how you do it is up to you. Run a lap around your block, take your dog for a long walk, or call your friends for a pick-up game in the park. The important thing is that you have fun being active—and you inspire others to join you.

In the Oceania area, it all kicks off with Dame Valerie Adams as the official starter in Auckland, New Zealand. It then turns to Melbourne, Australia, where Commonwealth Games medalist Lisa Weightman captains the run.
