Our events have a great reputation - always well organized, great swag, and grateful beneficiaries helping those who need it most. You will appreciate the attention to details and friendliness of everyone involved.
For those who have run our course before, the terrain and amazing autumn colors & scenery was uniquely designed  by Mother Nature! We think you'll love the views and the challenge whether you run or walk the distance.

DONATIONS: Non runners and participants can donate any time. The earlier you register and/or donate, the earlier your generosity will be distributed through the Weston Kiwanis Foundation to help those in need. 
 
The Local Weston Courses:   Although roads are not closed, both courses are well maintained for safety.

Proceeds from the 2019 Half Marathon went to the Kiwanis Club of Weston Foundation, Inc.  (501(c)3) to be used for disadvantaged youth related and other needs identified by the Foundation.   The Foundation also provided proceeds from the 2019 5K to the Weston Boosters for the Captain's Leadership Circle programs at Weston High School.
