Click Here For The Most Recent World Run Day Press Release

For 2020, this Press Center page contains various media resources that include press releases, historical facts, sample World Run Day participant listings, and images for your use. It also contains an abundance of ideas for your news story, whether it be your TV Network, Syndicated Newspaper, Radio, Blog, or YouTube Channel. Don’t let your air time or content space go empty when you can promote the health benefits of running and running for a cause. 

Everything World Run Day does is centered in the belief that running is the best form of exercise in our world today. By leveraging a running event concept worldwide with the help of event directors and enthusiastic runners, we feel the health benefits of running can become more widespread. We also believe that a day celebrating running and charitable running can be one of the most meaningful events on the calendar each and every year.

To that end, we fully recognize that The Power of Runners can only be accomplished with The Power of The Press. Depending on where you live, there may be an immediate need for charity fundraising (e.g. natural disaster), or to fulfill a charity project for a future need. 

Look at the runners and charities in your area and see what compels them to run, to donate. World Run Day is a day for runners to celebrate running and give to their favorite causes. For more information regarding our typical runner profiles, please visit the Event Sampler Link.


Some potential interview topics are available for your consideration: COVID 19 and Running, Running as Medicine, 2020 Event Shirt Design, The Camaraderie of Runners, Running as the Best Form of Exercise, World Run Day Beginnings, Getting Prepared for World Run Day, Charities in need of your help (many are unique to your own specific location).
