National Running Day – Deals & Giveaways

It’s one of the only holidays I celebrate, National Running Day. If you have never ran before, try it today. Five minutes is all I ask. It doesn’t even have to be half a mile.

Normally, I sign up several marathons on this day since there’s always deals too good to pass up. However, since I went on a bit of a marathon binge this Spring, and a half Ironman in the fall that was pricey, I’m going to have to exhibit some self control. But you know what they say, it’s not over until the deal expired. So instead I’ll share what’s on my rader.

National Running Day

Rock & Roll Marathons & Half Marathons – I know we all have our opinions on these events, between the price and the circus it creates. But try as I may, I always half a blast and today the prices are actually reasonable, at least for the marathons. Up to $20 off most of their race registrations

Sparkly Soul Headbands – Is hosting a giveaway. I’ve actually never owned one, so maybe today is my lucky day?

Timex  For every use of #IMARUNNER on National Running Day, Timex will donate $5, up to $20,000, towards the Boomer Esiason Foundation’s Team Boomer program.  Individuals who contribute content via the hashtag #IMARUNNER will also be qualified to win Timex® IRONMAN® watches. I could really use one!

ProCompression Socks – Not really a national running day deal, but still a good one. 50% off all socks with the code “JUNE”

New York Event – Sometimes, I really miss living in Brooklyn with all my heart. Besides my family and friends that still live there, there’s always something cool going on like this “singlet mixer” or NYRR handing out some free stuff.  The New York Road Runners will be set up at East Drive and Grand Army Plaza at Prospect Park from 7am to 10am and at Pier 2 on the path at Brooklyn Bridge Park from 5pm to 7pm. At each spot, they’ll be passing out free water, free five-borough bandanas and free National Running Day bibs.

CitySports – 20% off with code RunDay on select running gear. Not the greatest, but if you’re going to buy something anyways, might as well use it.


That’s all I have for this morning but I’m going to keep updating this post as I check my email for more deals so come back later and check!



What are you doing for National Running Day? I’m running! I might buy myself a little running present too… maybe.
