Athletes

Inspire. Engage. Support.

"Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you." -Misty Copeland

InspireAthletes are inspired to make their race or run more meaningful through fundraising and service.

Engage: Athletes engage their networks of friends and family to give, financially or through dedicated service projects, to the communities that inspire them to run, explore and, of course, wander!

SupportWander Project supports athletes in their fundraising efforts. We know that this can be challenging, but it can also be FUN to share your story and your motivation for running and fundraising with your community of support. We are here to make sure each racer reaches its full potential!

Choose Your Race

Join Wander Project with our Charity Bib program and run for a purpose!

Raise your minimum fundraising commitment (minimums vary on the event) to support the community in and around the area of your race, and we'll waive your race entry fee. 

The Charity Bib program now has four race partners that offer charity bibs to support the communities that inspire us to run! If you are not sure about attending an in-person event this year or would like to help raise funds for a community beneficiary of your choice, check out the options with the Virtual Running Club.

There will be prizes for the top fundraiser at each event this year as a bonus. If you are the top fundraiser for the year, you will win a race entry, flight, and hotel accommodations for a 2022 Vacation Races or Navajo Yes half marathon or an ultra-marathon of your choice.

We are here to support you in your fundraising efforts! If you feel stuck or have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to Amy.

Click on the race partner below to find your race. Once you have found your event, then scroll down to register with a "Charity Bib," and you are on your way!

Inspire your friends to run with you!
