Sign up for a One City Marathon race for FREE!!!

Posted on February 21, 2017 at 8:54 AM by Communications Department

You know you want to, but you still haven’t registered for one of the races and that’s okay! Just in case you needed another incentive to do it, there is a way to get involved for FREE! You can raise money for one of the official marathon charities and run at no cost to you. MarathonFinishHenry_SC

The inaugural race established a tradition of supporting local nonprofits that improve the lives of families in our area. Help raise additional funds for our 2017 Official Charitable Partners by participating in the “Run for Free” Program or donate directly to our three partners – Parents Against Bullying, Alternatives, Inc. and the Center for Child and Family Services. In just two years, the One City Marathon has contributed over $40,000 to organizations right in our backyard. That number already makes the One City Marathon one of the most generous races of its size in the United States! Now it is your time to give back!
