About This Activity

Update (5/22): Unfortunately, we have cancelled timed running for The Big Run 2019. The event will still go on but it will be a "fun run" instead, meaning no paid registration. If you are interested in running the event, please continue to register so we can get an accurate count of participants.

To all who have registered, we will be issuing refunds for your registration.  We apologize for the inconvenience but hope to still see you at the event. If you have any questions, please reach out to or call us at 707-569-1494. 

In 2018, 12,000 runners across the country participated in the first-ever Fleet Feet nationwide 5K, The Big Run, on Global Running Day.

In 2020, The Big Run is back and will be bigger than ever.

On June 3, Fleet Feet locations nationwide, in partnership with Brooks and Nuun, will hold one of two 5K events: either a (super) fun run or a certified, timed 5K race.

Our Santa Rosa event will be a super fun run, meaning no timed running. All participants will still receive medals and can stick around afterwards for post-race beer in The Barlow. We will also be hosting a contest for a "social media butterfly". We will be awarding one individual with a portable, bluetooth speaker from Brooks Running. To win, you must post about The Big Run on social media platforms using hashtags and tagging Fleet Feet, Fleet Feet Santa Rosa and Brooks Running. This year's "social media butterfly" will be announced after the race.

Curious to check out last year's event? Search #thebigrun on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to see how our epic coast-to-coast running community celebrated at The Big Run.

See you on June 3!
