The Story

EVENT DATE: May 05, 2018

For some, it’s not enough to run 13.1 miles for themselves. That’s why the organizers of the Door County Half Marathon introduced the Run For A Cause program, to give runners a little more motivation with each training stride.

In seven years, the program has helped dozens of runners raise more than $130,000 for Door County charities as well as some national charities. Runners can help build on that total by signing up to run for their favorite Door County charity now. Organizers have made 100 registrations available free to runners who commit to raising at least $250 for an area charity.

Once runners in the half marathon or the 5k raise the $250 minimum, they’ll receive a free entry for the Door County Half Marathon or the Nicolet Bay 5k. Participants are, of course, encouraged to raise more than the minimum.

The registration deadline for the program is April 1, 2018, though organizers encourage early registration to allow ample time for fundraising and publicity for the chosen non-profit.
