LEE COUNTY, Fla.-- On Wednesday, June 6, people will celebrate Global Running Day across the world, including right here in Southwest Florida.

Fit2Run at the Coconut Point mall says they have free tools to help people get started on running. They have a machine that scans your foot to see what kind of shoes you need. They'll also do a treadmill test to see what kind of runner you are. It's important you have the right shoes to prevent any injuries.

There are also many apps you can access to help you run and track your progress, like Couch to 5K, Strava and Garmin Connect. 

Fit2Run has a free run every Wednesday to help you get your family moving. They'll also have a donut run on Saturday, June 16.
