Interested in fundraising for a charity? We offer many options to support worthy organizations throughout the country. With a minimum donation of financial support (varies by charity), you’ll receive a race entry to a Big Sur Marathon event and, in some cases, online training and/or other benefits from the charity.

When considering the charity fundraising option, please keep in mind that it is unfair to commit if you have no real intention or realistic possibility of raising the agreed fundraising target. Don’t be put off by the amount that has to be raised; fundraising isn’t as difficult as you might expect, especially if you start early and get family and friends to help. If possible, look to a charity that has meaning for you, whether in memory of a family member, to support a friend, or because of your own personal experience.

We would like to welcome our 2020 Official Charity Partners. Links to all fundraising platforms will be available later in July.
