Carlsbad Marathon Official Charities

Run for a Reason

Every step you run or walk will get you closer to the marathon, half marathon or 5K finish line and closer to your goal, so every step counts. But do you realize how your steps can help someone else reach their goal? Maybe their goal is to extend their life a little longer as science searches for a cure for their disease. Maybe their goal is to be a participant in a 5K despite their disability or maybe their goal is to have a safe shelter for their children, free from physical and emotional abuse.

Your steps can help others! Please consider running or walking your Carlsbad Marathon, Half or 5K on behalf of the Official Charities. With very little extra effort, you’ll reach your goal and at the same time make a huge difference in someone’s life. It’s very easy to do and oh so rewarding. The money you raise will go directly to the official marathon charity you choose. 

All of the Official Charities will be represented along the course during the marathon, half marathon and 5K lending support and guidance to all the athletes. Feel good about helping those who cannot run along side you.
