Runners can also celebrate Run@School.
The Road Runners Club of America, the largest grassroots running organization in the country, is partnering with many offices and schools to promote the eighth RUN@WORK Day and 2nd Annual RUN@School on Friday.
The goal of RUN@WORK Day is to encourage adults and children to get 30-minutes of exercise each day, in accordance with the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, either in the morning, during lunch, or immediately following work or school. 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.
“We chose to participate because I am an avid runner who runs at lunch,” said Valerie Blajeski of the Alaska Department of Fish & Game in Anchorage, Alaska. “Folks always mention that they’d like to join me but don’t always have an incentive to do so. This event shows them how feasible it is to squeeze in some physical activity during your lunch break.”
