TYLER, Texas — Looking for some inspiration to stay active during COVID-19? The "CoRUNa Series," is one way to do that. With a goal of 30 miles a month.
As social distancing and stay at home orders began in March, general manager Meredith Bryans at iTRI365 in Tyler started making decisions about future events.

“It was really almost a day by day thing in the beginning,” Bryans said.
To combat events being canceled and postponed, the company created the “CoRUNa Series.”
In early April, they started asking people to participate in getting active for 30 miles.
“It doesn't have to be running,” Bryans said. “It can be walking. It can be on your bike. It could be on your treadmill or inside your house. It could even be like kayaking on the lake. We're not really picky about whatever active looks like to you.”
From April up until the end of May, the group has had more than 170 participants so far.
“We have a lot of seasoned runners that are participating, and they're logging way more than 30 miles a month, but we wanted something to be achievable,” Bryans said. “If you want to try to encourage the rest of your family to get active, it's not something that's so daunting that your kids can't do it. Or somebody who's not used to being active, maybe couldn't do it.”
You can register for the CoRUNa Series at iTRI365.com.
The series will end August 31. “Swag Kits” are delivered to participants who log 30 miles. The kits come from stores locally and help give back to them during this time.
