National Stroller Running Day
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 8th
I have some amazing and really exciting news to share with you! I was just recently contacted to help spread the word about the first ever National Stroller Running Day! It will be held annually every second Saturday in November and is a day when active parents can celebrate their love and commitment for family fitness. This day was conceived by Katie McFarland from Moms Little Running Buddies, when she realized that there was no specific day dedicated to stroller runners who make family fitness a priority. Through her efforts, she has brought together Britax BOB Gear, Lisa Druxman of Fit4Mom and my friend, Lara from RunStrollerRun.com to celebrate and make this day a success.
Families are encouraged to participate by running with other stroller runners or active parents, joining a family friendly race or just getting out and being active. If you want to find a stroller friendly race to register for, look no further than RunStrollerRun.com which is the premier site that focuses on stroller and family friendly races. Whatever you choose to do, make sure you share on social media using the hashtag #StrollerRun14!
You can also get involved by participating in the Inaugural National Stroller Running Day Kick Off Twitter Party on November 4th at 9PM EST! Come chat alongside the host, Pregnancy Awareness Month (@PregAwareness) and other sponsors using the hashtag #StrollerRun14 for your chance to win a BOB running stroller plus more amazing fitness prizes!
Another way to win more fantastic family fitness prizes by heading over to Moms Little Running Buddies and entering! Prizes include a BOB PRO (winner chooses single or double), free month of Fit4Mom stroller strides classes, family four pack of New Balance shoes, Linkouture, and a Title Nine gift certificate! The giveaway for all this amazing stuff runs through November 2, 2014.
I know that I will be participating in both the Twitter chat on the 4th as well as taking my girls for a run in my BOB on November 8th. Even if you’re not a parent you can participate but joining in with a friend and helping to spread the word!
What will you be doing to celebrate on National Stroller Running Day?
