With over 2 million people and 166 countries celebrating Global Running Day today, June 1st, there’s no better time to celebrate alliantgroup’s own running team’s accomplishments! In 2014, alliantgroup runners and walkers began racing a 5k each month and we’re still going strong! We’ve logged 3,107 miles—the distance from Houston to Greenland—taken over 6 million steps, and completed 18 races!

The goal of Global Running Day is to inspire others to adopt a healthy lifestyle and get moving no matter what the activity or distance! So whether you commit to one lap or twenty, get out and run because you will be energized, stronger, and healthier for it!

Check out our very own alliantgroup runners as we celebrate the joys of running and invest in our health!
