Race for a CauseApril 24-26, 2020 The Eugene Marathon and Half Marathon are the perfect running destination for a first-time racer or seasoned veteran. No matter what race you choose, you’ll break the finish line tape in front of cheering fans! With a new course that features Downtown Eugene but captures most of the historic Eugene Marathon route, runners will still capture the gorgeous views of the Willamette River, run through South Eugene’s beautiful neighborhood and enter through the East Tunnel of Autzen Stadium and #FinishOnTheFifty. A “you can not miss this” type of race, both runners and walkers are encouraged to come and experience the magic of Track Town USA in this destination running event.
WHAT IS THE RUN FOR FREE PROGRAM?
With the RUN FOR FREE program you can, you guessed it… Run for Free while raising money for a great cause. Simply sign up to run the 5K, Half Marathon or the Marathon on behalf of A Family For Every Child, meet your fundraising minimums and you will Run for Free!
Donations made through the fundraising efforts of our Eugene Marathon/Half Marathon/5K team members will help A Family For Every Child continue the important work we do here in Lane County and nationwide to support children currently in the foster care system; by connecting them with mentors, providing fun and encouraging activities, and helping children and parents through the matching and adoption process to create forever families.
When you run in the Eugene Marathon this year you get to run for the kids and have your cost of running directly impact the programs to help foster youth in your community. We look forward to running with you!
