The 19th Annual Reaching for the Cure Half Marathon, 10K, 5K, and Kids Run will take place on Sunday, March 26, 2017 at Irvine Valley College in honor of pediatric cancer warriors, patients, and survivors everywhere.

It’s about the kids! The athletic boosters mission is raise funds for Northwood athletics which enrich the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of all students by providing competitive opportunities in which the lifelong values of sportsmanship, individual effort, character development, teamwork, integrity, and commitment are emphasized.
These races are structured to raise the maximum amount of funds for local nonprofits and charities while showcasing one of the most beautiful and historic cities in Southern California. A minimum of 15% of all race registration fees are slated to go directly to the nonprofits and charities that the race registrants themselves choose when they register for one of the races. No other major road race in the United States allows the racers to choose the non-profit or charity they want to support.

Jack & Jill’s Downhill Marathon is a fast gentle downhill course on one of Washington’s most scenic trails. North Bend, WA is located just 31 miles east of Seattle. Runners are bused to Hyak from North Bend. After you pass through the Snoqualmie Tunnel, you can enjoy the next 23 miles down a gradual 2000 foot net drop down the John Wayne Trail on a hard-packed, shaded dirt/gravel road. “YES” you will be able to use your finish time to qualify for Boston or chalk up a new PR. Either way, this 26.2 mile journey is breathtakingly beautiful and sure to be a favorite.
This course is a USATF Boston Qualifying course with a net drop of over 4000’. We have strategically picked September 15, 2019 because “if’“ and “when” you qualify, you can register for Boston 2020 (please read Boston registration rules below) and the following year you can use your same time for 2021**.
Idaho is filled with beauty and nothing is more fun than running through a scenic course and “downhill”. JJ offers both, from Bogus Basin to Ann Morrison Park. Bask in the beauty as you coast downhill and finish with a PR.
