Hug a Runner Day – Go Out and Share the Love

Hug a Runner Day

G.O. H.A.R.D. (Globally Organized Hug A Runner Day) is celebrated in Portland and we thought – why not Taos?! This could be the single best day of the year.

Every runner deserves a hug. A real hug. The kind of hug that says, “Even if I don’t understand why you do it, I appreciate and recognize your effort.”

Check out Run the Edge to see how they do it in Portland. Then find a runner and share the love!
