The Story

"Running for charity takes something that is inherently selfish

and makes it selfless." -Runner's World


Our event has hosted thousands of participants since 2002. Many have chosen to make their race experience even more meaningful by fundraising in support of a worthwhile charitable organization.


We encourage you to consider joining in the effort to make our race both an inspiring event in your life, while ultimately supporting thousands of people and many great organizations, many of whom provide goods, services, and volunteers for our event.


Our Beyond the Finish Line: Charitable Fundraising Program provides exciting and rewarding opportunities for individuals to accomplish their personal goals, while at the same time helping both local and national non-profits raise funds and awareness for their important organizations.


Our fundraising efforts have helped charities raise more than $100,000.00 in donations to date. Please help us continue this very important tradition!


Whether you're a participant, volunteer, or a supporter, we encourage you to get involved and help make a real difference!
