Event Details

Last year, 16,000 runners across the country participated in the nationwide 5K, The Big Run, on Global Running Day.

In 2019, The Big Run is back and bigger than ever.

On June 5, Fleet Feet locations nationwide, in partnership with Brooks, will hold a certified, timed 5K race.

All results from these races will funnel up into a national leader board to determine and reward the overall fastest runners and age groupers in the country with some pretty cool cash prizes. And since this is Fleet Feet, and we celebrate and welcome runners of all abilities and levels, we will also recognize runners with some truly unique awards, including:

Common Ground: Finish at the most common finish time for The Big Run, and we'll enter you into a drawing for something BIG!

Middle of the Pack: We'll recognize the male and female who finish in the exact middle of all The Big Run results.

Social Butterflies: We'll thank the two people with the most-engaged social media posts from The Big Run with some pretty sweet prizes.

Curious to check out last year's event? Search #thebigrun on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to see how our epic coast-to-coast running community celebrated at The Big Run.

5k Route

Our beautiful route will start and finish in front of East Moline's Rust Belt, a revitalized car manufacturing plant turned music venue, brewery, fitness facility, design studio and retail destination. Runners and walkers will soon find themselves atop the berm of the Ben Butterworth Parkway, overlooking the Mighty Mississippi. There could be no better visual backdrop for a BIG Run than our country's BIG waterway!

Packet Pickup

Early Packet Pickup will be held at Fleet Feet in Davenport on Tuesday, June 4th from 12p until 8p.
Race Day Pickup will be held from 5p to 6p at The Rust Belt.

The BIG Show

We'll celebrate and recognize finishers and award winners with a proper ceremony after the run, but following awards, all participants are welcomed to spill into the Rust Belt for an exclusive concert brought to us by Moeller Nights, set to begin at 8:00. Tickets are included with your registration, but will otherwise cost $25; you'll want to be there. Artist will be announced in April.
