Media Alert: Runners Nationwide Aim to Log 20,000 Miles on National Running Day with Life Time Run — June 4, 2014

Runners of all ages and abilities are invited to participate


On June 4, Life Time – The Healthy Way of Life CompanySM (NYSE: LTM) is inviting runners of all levels and abilities to hit the pavement — or a treadmill — in celebration of National Running Day. Life Time is setting out to log 20,000 miles in a single day, the equivalent of running across the United States from coast to coast 6.5 times, as a fun way to encourage people of all ages, skill levels and abilities to participate in a healthy, active way of life.

Free, fun social runs will be held at Life Time destinations across the country by Life Time Run, the nation’s premiere run club. Miles will be tracked and tabulated toward the 20,000 mile goal. For those unable to participate in the social runs, Life Time Run is encouraging anyone who runs on June 4 to log their miles on Life Time Run’s Facebook page or via Twitter using the hashtags #lifetimerun and #nationalrunningday. Total miles logged will be announced on June 5, following a tabulation from Life Time Run coaches and social media submission.

Life Time Run, the fastest growing running organization in the country, has more than 18,000 runners actively participating in its monthly programs and offers social run programs, group training as well as customized training and coaching.
