5 Promo Ideas For Global Running Day

Running is one of the world’s most practiced and popular activities. In the United States, about 50 million Americans participate in some form of running or jogging, according to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association.


Whether they run to relieve stress, train for a marathon or improve their overall health, runners are pounding the pavement (or treadmill) more than ever. More than one-fifth of runners say they run more now than before the pandemic, according to Nielsen research. 


Running Day on June 1 is a chance for runners of all ages and abilities to pledge to stay active. Gyms, run clubs and running stores can use promotional products to connect with experienced runners and draw new runners to the activity. 

Keep A Cool Head

The Double-Sided Headband is an ideal giveaway for run clubs to celebrate Global Running Day. Runners can use this lightweight, breathable headband wet for instant cooling or dry to wick moisture away. This unisex, one-size-fits-most headband can be folded to wear skinny or left wide. After a run, just pop it in the washing machine. 

Draw Runners In

Charity runs can use the Tie-Dye Drawstring Backpack to draw more race participants. This polyester backpack can fit other race-day giveaways inside and features a large imprint area on the front. Its vibrant, multicolor design makes it stand out. 

Hydration Station

The American College of Sports Medicine recommends drinking 5-12 ounces of fluids every 15-20 minutes during a marathon. With the Cool N’ Compact Origami Silicone Water Bottle, runners can stay hydrated on the go. This foldable, silicone water bottle holds 25 ounces and features a handle for clipping onto a carabiner or waist pack. A stainless-steel screw-on lid keeps your logo visible. 

Make A Logo Stick Around

Running organizations and running stores can give out the SPF 50 Face Stick to get their logo seen on Global Running Day and beyond. This stick features all-natural, vegan, broad-spectrum sunscreen that goes on smooth. Runners will appreciate this handy, portable sunscreen they can stash in a pocket or waist pack. 

Jump To It

This Cordless Jump Rope makes a great promotional gift from gyms and fitness studios. Runners can work on their endurance with this jump rope that features four different modes and a counting range up to 9,999. Packaged in a logoed pouch, this jump rope is ideal for race registrants or to thank renewing gym members.
