:: $250, 000 for RUN for Water ::
I’ve watched as well as participated in this event, and seen it grown into a first class event with pretty much all distances in its platform. It also recently added a 55km ultra run on the Saturday. Raise 1,500 bux and you can put yourself through some serious mental testing. I knew a good handful of people running all the distances with a few running the ultra and one crazy guy doing the ultra then lacing them up the next day for the full marathon.
The half and full marathon goes through some of my favorite training spots, with a very flat and no interruptions course. In my opinion, this is one of the best half and full marathons out there. Did I mention this is also an official Boston Qualifier as well! 5km, 10km, half marry, full marry, and ultra…and a great cause! I’m thinking I better change up my scheduling for next year so I can run this again!
4200 plus, up over 1,000 from last year and I do believe they raised over 250,000. That is insane! Huge community support and will increase in numbers for sure. A little prize money always helps too…
