Why we got started...
On July 1st 2013, One Run For Boston made running history by becoming the first ever non-stop relay to run across America from Los Angeles to Boston.
Over 2000 runners helped complete the 3300 mile journey. They raised $91,000 for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings and an inspirational running community was born.
One Run For Boston was set up by three British runners who wanted to show their support for those impacted by the bombings. They had no idea if the relay would work, let alone take off in the extraordinary way that it did.
One Run For Boston became a symbol of hope and positivity that inspired a powerful grassroots movement that continues to unite the running community.
In 2014 One Run For Boston returns to blaze an even brighter trail across America. We’d love you to be part of it.
