Runners To Celebrate World Run Day Across USA

Nearly 2,000 Runners To Benefit Hundreds Of Charities On Sunday

NEW YORK, NY Nov 5 They may not be high-fiving to crowds and passing runners left and right; but their love for the sport of running shines thru on World Run Day 2011. Some call it the "Thinking Man's Run" (or Woman's in many cases) as these runners contemplate where they will run and who they will be running for. World Run Day is almost here!

The instructions are pretty simple: Run and Donate locally this November 6th on World Run Day - The International Day for Running. It's a creative effort to publicize the health benefits of running and put needed dollars towards each runners' local charity. Thus far, over 1900 runners in hundreds of cities across the USA have pre-registered for the event at $16.99 which outfits them with an official event running shirt, a unique E-BIB, and listing with other like-minded runners throughout the USA. Thru their Internet Registration, runners provide their local city name, a description of their route, thought-provoking quotes, and charity donation information - all to express their love for their sport.

"We pioneered the virtual run in 1999 and now in 2011 we have E-BIBs for some runners in India” says Bill McDermott , president and founder of World Run Day. Using Earth Day as a model, runners everywhere can pitch in to promote the sport of running - and benefit local charity. On the roads, the beach, a park, or even on a treadmill, the runners are committed to celebrating the day and raising needed monies for charity. Runner's World Magazine has offered some tips to motivate runners. A professional quality video for promoting the event was recently released to the media.

Rock star Sting and wife Trudie Styler have lent their support to the World Run Day event by stating: "It is a great way for people around the world to come together and raise money for charity".
