    "Charity invitational runners" will intend to receive a bib from Special Olympics Massachusetts and will commit to raise a $10,000 minimum. "Qualified runners" & "Other runners" are runners who have secured a bib from another source - These two types should email xtramile@specialolympicsma.org for further fundraising details.
    With an extremely limited team size for the 2021 Marathon in October, we will likely have far fewer entries than qualified fundraising candidates. We anticipate a larger team in April 2022, please indicate if this would be an option for you.
  • Fundraising Expierience

  • There is a mandatory $10,000 minimum for charity invitational runners; however, we strongly encourage participants to raise over $10,000. *Each runner is responsible for paying their own race registration fee when they register for the marathon. It does not apply towards your fundraising.
