Is Your Date Still Available? Sponsor a Day of the Race Across the USA!

The Race Across the USA is a competitive race across the United States. It also represents a race against childhood obesity. Core Team runners must make a hefty registration payment to participate. This covers accommodations, transportation and the cost of volunteers. However, the amount paid doesn’t begin to cover the full cost of the event. Even with four runners to a room, the cost for 140 nights in a hotel is astronomical. For this reason, we plan to camp and also rely on the kindness of service groups along the way. Unfortunately, with a packed schedule of school visits and other engagements, camping so many nights is going to put a strain on the runners, volunteers and race staff. That’s why we have put together a sponsorship program!

About the Race

  • The Race Across USA is a footrace scheduled for January 16 through June 2, 2015 (140 days). The cause is childhood fitness.
  • The running distance from California to Washington D.C. will total 3,080 miles.
  • There will be 10 core team runners who will run across the entire country. There will be up to 20 runners in each one of the states.
  • Runners will run stages that are approximately 26.2 miles (a marathon) long and participate in expos with students and the local community to get the word out.
  • The event will start in Huntington Beach, California and pass through Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia and finally Washington D.C. On June 2, the runners will finish the day at the White House in Washington D.C.
  • The goals for the Race Across USA are three fold: a) Raise awareness about childhood activity and fitness in young people, b) Raise funds to sponsor students who cannot afford the cost of qualified activity programs and c) Visit schools along the route to inspire students to lead active lives.
