Runners are encouraged to bring a new or a gently worn pair of shoes to select Global Running Day meet up locations where donations will be accepted (check local event Facebook pages). Look for the Rock This Town booth located in the Health and Fitness Expo at future Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series events. For more information, visit www.ironmanfoundation.org/rock-this-town/.
