Champions for Justice Virtual Relay Marathon

Thu October 14 - Sun October 17 Washington, DC 20005 US

Most offenders of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, and human trafficking face zero consequences for their crimes. We can change that.

Since 2009, AEquitas has been helping prosecutors across the country better keep victims safe and hold offenders accountable. Named after the Roman goddess of equity and fairness, AEquitas was established to support prosecutors in their individual and collective efforts to achieve justice in gender-based violence, stalking, and human trafficking cases. 

When you run the Champions for Justice Marathon, you address gender based violence, stalking and human trafficking head on-on by joining a global community committed to increasing access to justice for survivors. The 2021 Champions for Justice Relay Marathon is a totally virtual event, and all proceeds will go towards training, consultation, publications, and development of innovative strategies that promote survivor-centered justice.


AEquitas is proudly headquartered in Washington, D.C. -- but this event is 100% virtual! You can run, walk, swim, bike, or pogo stick in any location in the world with anyone in the world on your team.

A virtual race is a race that can be run at your convenience during a specified period of time. AEquitas typically fields a live team at the fastest track in the world -- the NYC Armory -- but we’ve innovated in the pandemic, with the 2020 and 2021 races being virtual.


Compete in this virtual 26.2 mile marathon solo or as part of a team! 

Typically, teams of 2-8 (friends, colleagues, neighbors, family) will complete a full marathon. For runners looking for a shorter course, join or form our Team of 26, where each runner completes 1 mile (and team captains complete 1.2 miles). 

Not a runner? You can also walk, bike, swim, hike, or surprise us with another creative way to move! Help advance our urgent mission to increase access to justice for survivors of sexual violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, and human trafficking by educating and supporting prosecutors from law school to electeds.
