Couch Potatoes Can Join National Running Day

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Couch potatoes can get in a jog and do a little social networking, too.

That's the aim of National Running Day on June 3. The day will feature events and activities across the country, from San Diego to New York City.

Track and field organizations will host free running events, group runs and clinics, with the aim of getting participants to invite a friend. New York Road Runners president Mary Wittenberg says this is part of a grass-roots effort to get Americans moving.

Those interested can go to the Web site runningday.org.
