A nationwide movement to inspire a culture of
fitness at work and schools.
On September 15, 2017 the RRCA will present the 12th Annual RUN@WORK Day
and the 6th Annual RUN@School Day
, nationwide fitness efforts. Company-based wellness programs, human resources departments, running clubs, running events, running shoe stores, teachers, coaches parents, and individuals nationwide are encouraged to plan fun runs and walks around the country with their employers or at local schools.
The goal of RUN@WORK Day and RUN@School Day is to encourage adults and children to get at least 30-minutes of exercise each day, in accordance with the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, either before work/school, during lunch, or immediately following work/school. RUN@WORK Day also encourages companies to help employees schedule time for physical activity. Incorporating exercise into one’s daily routine can markedly improve one’s overall physical health.
