About This Activity

Join Extra Mile, Saucony and Burn EM for a fun run/walk on Wednesday, November 13th at 6 p.m.  The run/walk will start and finish at the Extra Mile, 1330 E Lincolnway, Valparaiso, Indiana. 

Our goal of this fun event is to bring awareness to the everyone out moving in the dark.  We want to make a statement to our community WE are out moving and to be sure to keep an extra eye out for us.  We are asking EVERYONE to wear reflective gear and lights.  Let us BE BRIGHT. Let us BE SMART.  While out moving during the shorter days, we remind everyone to dress SMART.   Listen SMART.  And BE BRIGHT.  We want everyone to be safe.

This 3 mile run/walk will take place on the city streets and sidewalks.  All paces and abilities are welcome.  We ask anyone under the age of 14 to please be accompanied by an adult.

Saucony will be joining us with their latest versions of the Triumph 17 and Guide.  Arrive early so you test ride the latest models. 

Extra Mile will also provide beverages and snacks.

“November is a pivotal time for safety education, when daylight savings ends and runners are forced to get in their miles in at night,” states Terry Schalow, Executive Director of the RIA. “In addition, we want to ensure that running with listening devices doesn’t limit awareness to potential danger. Running at all times of the year should be both fun and safe, and local running retailers are the perfect ambassadors to get this message out to their communities.”

The RIA’s mission is to promote running as a lifestyle, and to provide support for running store retailers through location education programs and runner advocacy. [local business name] is working in support of those goals by bringing National Running Safety Month to Northwest Indiana

 “Running and safety must always go hand in hand,” said Todd and Heather Henderlong of Extra Mile Fitness “Education and awareness gained from National Running Safety Month ensures that our fellow runners keep enjoying the sport for years to come.”
