This year’s marathon has been described as a “charity takeover” by Eva Solomon, CEO of Epic Races, with an emphasis on breaking down the stigma around mental health. A portion of each entrant’s registration fees will be donated to one of 20 charities, with the entrant choosing the specific charity.

Participating charities include Lost Voices, The Corner Health Center, Ozone House, and Mood Lifters.

The event will include a full 42.2 mile marathon, run individually or as a relay of four, as well as a 13.1 mile, 10 km, and 5 km half marathon.

All races end in the same place.
