World Run Day - Run for your favorite charity.

We regret to inform our faithful participants that there are so many causes this year, that our organization has decided, with much deliberation, to forego t-shirt sales in lieu of runners donating their t-shirt costs (approximately $20 USD) to a charity of their choice. We will be planning for 2018, in the next month, which plans to be the largest World Run Day ever. Thank you for your understanding and your letters of concern.

Event Participants:


World Run Day Participants celebrate the sport of running by promoting the health benefits of running to others - while running “their own course” for the day. Running, either by themselves or with small groups, many participants also pledge a monetary donation directly to their favorite charity. All registrants are mailed the 2016 event t-shirt and a Tyvek Running Bib Number (new for 2016!).

The E-BIB: Has been replaced in 2017 Running Bib (see above)
