Do you want to support the One Fund? Do you want to be apart of something as powerful as the Boston Marathon?

Check out – the One Run for Boston – March 16th – April 13th
On July 1st 2013, One Run For Boston made running history by becoming the first ever non-stop relay to run across America from Los Angeles to Boston.
Over 2000 runners helped complete the 3300 mile journey. They raised $91,000 for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings and an inspirational running community was born.
One Run For Boston was set up by three British runners who wanted to show their support for those impacted by the bombings. They had no idea if the relay would work, let alone take off in the extraordinary way that it did.
One Run For Boston became a symbol of hope and positivity that inspired a powerful grassroots movement that continues to unite the running community.
In 2014 One Run For Boston returns to blaze an even brighter trail across America. We’d love you to be part of it.
I had the pleasure of running a stage of the 2013 One Run and it was the most powerful 6 miles of my life.
After the horrible events, I think everyone in the running community wanted to continuously show their support. My stage of the One Run was from the starting line in Hopkinton to the train stop in Framingham. I ran the marathon a few years ago and I’ve run the beginning miles of the course more than a couple times, but this 6 mile stage with my fellow runner was a healing moment for us all. We had high spirits and a fast pace as we ran with legends like Dave McGillivary and Danny Bent (one of the organizers and a man with the biggest heart). The group of 15 – 20 runners included a very wide range of abilities, but our passion pushed our legs faster. A young couple from New Jersey that drove up to Massachusetts after completing an earlier stage, a young woman that had already completed 2 stages and planned to run to the finish line, a pair of local high schoolers made the group young, lively, and mature beyond their years.
