RRCA National Run @ Work Day on Sept. 17

Friday, Sept 17

The goal of National Run@Work Day, the third Friday of every September, is for RRCA members and individuals across the country to host community based events that encourage people to incorporate at least thirty minutes of walking or running into their daily lives.

If adults can lead by example, if companies can encourage healthy living, then together we can combat the national inactivity and obesity crisis gripping our nation and our children.

To help you plan your Run@Work Day event, the RRCA created the Run@Work Day Planning Kit and Fact Sheet.

National Run@Work Day supports several of the strategies outlined in the National Physical Activity Plan.  More specifically, Run@Work Day events highlight how nonprofit and for-profit sports organizations can work directly with business and industry to help promote physical fitness in the work environment.
