Go The Extra Mile In Your City
04 April 2019
Simply by participating in the race, 25% of your team’s race fee will be donated to invest in a project, delivered by our local partner, that uses the power of sport and physical activity to address a social challenge in your city. The best part is, you get to help choose where those funds go by choosing a cause you care about, and running for it.
