May 6th is the National Run a Mile Day.  May is traditionally National Running and Fitness Month and May 6th is the anniversary of the first sub 4 minute mile by Sir Roger Bannister on May 6th 1954.  This May 6th marks the 54th anniversary of the first sub 4 mile.  The goal of this holiday is to get people to get out there and run a mile.  Wherever you can run it, on a track, through the neighborhoods, on a treadmill.

The American Running Association has more information on the Run a Mile Day.  They even have T-Shirts for the event.  If you would like a T-shirt email the American Running Association with sizes and requests at milerun@americanrunning.org.  Shirts are $8 each and $15 shipping on orders under 10 Shirts.  Free shipping on orders of more than 10 shirts.  The ARA is also sending free shirts to the best 3 photos that can mimic the attire and setting of the historic sub 4 mile.
