The latest coolest thing ever to happen in the running community is known as G.O. H.A.R.D. Haven’t heard of it yet? Let me explain, Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day aka G.O. H.A.R.D. is a new event created by Tim and Adam from Run The Edge. The BIG day is November 20th, 2013. They have created a run(which you can follow on FB) in Portland, Oregon with a local running store in hopes to photograph the BIGGEST, LARGEST runner group hug!!! We are all already super supportive and unified as ONE TEAM, so why not celebrate that???
Many of us are not in the Portland area, but there are many ways to participate! And what comes with that…..TONS OF FREE STUFF!!!! =)
There are many ways to join this awesomely sweaty event! Run the Edge along with many other fantastic pages among the running community, will be doing giveaways if not everyday, then at the least every week! You can check out there great pages on FB for a chance to win one of the giveaways. Each of us will be doing a different one so it’s worth the look!

We have all come together across the U.S. to take part in this EPIC event. There are runners from California, Texas, North Carolina, and Florida among other places! Even though the event will take place in Portland, you can still participate on November 20th!!!
You can obviously HUG a runner crossing the finish line, HUG a runner who needs support, wear an old race bib, or even beads!!!! That is a great way to show other runners you are participating in the BIGGEST HUG A RUNNER DAY EVER!!! If you see someone on that day with any of this run up to them and hug them!!! You can find more details at Run The Edge blog here. There is even t-shirts you can purchase and that will be a sure sign you are in!
The running community is VERY united. I have said this time, and time again. So I believe this is the perfect way to embrace our strengths, our accomplishments, and our goals! Runners understand runners! Join me and my friends in this Super Fantastic event! Don’t forget to join our pages to get constant updates and know about the free goodies we are all giving away!
