The Xtra Mile is a community of runners, cyclists and other endurance athletes who have chosen to use their love of sport to increase awareness and inclusion while raising critical funds for Special Olympics Massachusetts. The Xtra Mile was established to promote healthy lifestyles through active lifestyle sports. You can join at a variety of levels including local walking/running clubs, 5K races or you can really jump in and apply to a marathon team.
Because the Boston Marathon® is such a historic race and one that many runners wish to run, we have limited space on our team. We open an application each fall for the following spring’s Marathon. If Boston is not right for you, we also have access to the TCS New York City Marathon in the fall, the Falmouth Road Race in August, and the B.A.A. 5K in April.
Join the Xtra Mile community today and you will be the first to know when the 2025 Marathon application is live.
Yes! This is a great option to bring the Xtra Mile to your community or use your bucket list race to support inclusive sports programming in Massachusetts. Please reach out to the Xtra Mile Team and they will work with you to set up a fundraising goal, hook you up with some training and race day gear and provide you with a personalized fundraising page. Depending on the race there may be training resources available.
We have several ways to bring Xtra Mile programming to your community. The most straightforward is to start a walking or running club. These clubs bring Special Olympics athletes together with members of their city or town who want to be active and social. If you are interested in walking/running clubs, please reach out today.
Another way to get the Xtra Mile into your world is through a race you manage. If you are a race director or volunteer, you can offer Xtra Mile fundraising bibs at your race. Shoot a note over to XtraMile@specialolympicsma.org to get the conversation going.
