Charity Challenge

Want to run one of our races for free and help deserving local charities at the same time? Join our Charity Challenge! The Charity Challenge provides a unique opportunity for race participants, individuals and organizations to raise funds on behalf of an official charity partner and gives charities a large platform on which to raise awareness for their cause. Our charities represent a wide variety of causes, so there’s sure to be an organization that appeals to everyone!
