The Road Runners Club of America is offering a planning kit and promotional material for the event.

From: Running USA

On Friday, September 16, 2011, the 6th RUN@WORK Day will happen nationwide. Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) will promote the annual event to the company-based wellness programs, human resources departments, running clubs, running events, running shoe stores and individuals to encourage fun runs and walks around the country with their employers.

The goal of RUN@WORK Day is to encourage adults to get 30-minutes of exercise each day, in accordance with the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, either before work, during lunch or immediately following work. RUN@WORK Day also encourages companies to help employees schedule time for physical activity. Incorporating exercise into one’s daily routine can markedly improve one’s overall outlook and physical health.
