A License to Run - 1,000 Registration Sites Prepared for Event

Runners Preparing for Nov 6th

NEW YORK, NY OCT 14 Over 1,000 Registration Sites have been created to allow runners to register and obtain their 2016 "License-Designed" World Run Day event shirt.


World Run Day 2016 is being held November 6th with participants from all over the United State participating. This year the event takes place on the same day as the prestigious New York City Marathon.

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. Runners in hundreds of cities across the USA registered for the event at $17.99 which outfits them with an official World Run Day running shirt, a Tyvek Bib, and listing with other like-minded runners throughout the USA. Thru their Internet Registration, at, 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. They run anywhere their heart desires!

"We pioneered the virtual run in 1999 and now in 2016 we have Tyvek BIBs mailed to our runners in areas world-wide” 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, in another event, or even on a treadmill, the runners are committed to celebrating the day and raising needed monies for charity. McDermott, himself, will be celebrating the event while running in the New York City Marathon the same day.

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