The annual event encourages adults to get 30 minutes of exercise each day.

On Friday, September 21, 2012, the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) will promote the 7th RUN@WORK Day nationwide. Company-based wellness programs, human resources departments, running clubs, running events, running shoe stores and individuals nationwide are encouraged to plan fun runs and walks around the country with their employers.

The goal of RUN@WORK Day, presented by the Road Runners Club of America, 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 physical health.

To help plan your RUN@WORK Day event, the RRCA created the RUN@WORK Day Planning Kit and Fact Sheet, go to:

To help promote your RUN@WORK Day event, the RRCA has also created a general promotional poster. To obtain a free copy of the promotional poster, send a self-addressed, postage paid, legal-sized envelope to 1501 Lee Hwy, Ste 140, Arlington, VA, 22209 or order posters online.
