Annual Fun Run for Charities

Sat September 4, 2021 Red Lodge, MT 59068 US

Fun Run 18 will be an in-person event, but we are keeping the option to run it "virtually", should you choose.

See below for details on running the race virtually.

Our main goal is to raise funds for 61 AWESOME Carbon County charities! From Arts and Historic Preservations to Youth, the Great Outdoors and Community Health & Safety, there is a cause for everyone. You don't have to pick just one either! You can support multiple charities or donate to the Sally Martin Match Fund and your gift will be distributed between all 61 charities.

Description

Ready, set...give!

Last year, YOU all helped us raise more then $240,000 for nearly 60 nonprofits. In all, you've helped us raise more then $3 million in the last 17 years! We're hoping you'll help us continue the trend this year, by participating in person OR virtually.

Last year, with the global health climate, we offered the Fun Run virtually, and many of you spoke out and asked us to continue doing so this year. We're working with our local health officers and monitoring the pandemic and are hopeful to offer the Fun Run in person AND virtually in 2021!

The same as last year, you'll be able to do your own race, on your own time, at your own pace if you choose to run/walk virtually! Donating is still as easy as previous years, and all of your favorite charities are still looking forward to your donations!

With the virtual race, you can run or walk the traditional Fun Run course at the time before noon on September 4th, or elect to complete a 5k, 10k, or 2 Mile walk route of your choosing. You can also participate with in-person runners and walkers on September 4th. Prizes will be awarded to overall and age-category winners that complete the traditional Fun Run course and submit their times. ALL participants will still receive a Fun Run T-shirt!

What to know about running a virtual Fun Run

  • What is a Virtual Race?
    • Virtual Races are an alternative to in-person events. They allow participants to complete a run/walk on their own day, time, and route.
  • How do I participate?
    • Sign up using the link above and select the event distance you’d like to run/walk -5k, 10k, or 2 Mile. Once registered, you have until September 5th to complete your selected run/walk. You can follow the traditional Fun Run route (please be aware, we do not manage traffic or have course volunteers for a virtual race) or run a route of your choosing that corresponds to the distance you selected. Once you’ve completed your route, submit your time, and receive a finisher certificate. Prizes will be awarded and mailed by mid-September.
  • Can I still donate?
    • Yes, our main goal is still to raise funds! We are accepting donations for 56 amazing Carbon County charities this year. Donations can be made here.
