Inspire. Engage. Support.

“A trophy carries dust. Memories last forever.” – Mary Lou Retton

InspireWander Project inspires small and medium sized endurance racing events from around the globe to strive to do more for the communities where their races are held.

Engage: Wander Project engages with racing events to build a community of athletes that don't just run, but run for a purpose.

SupportThrough the Wander Project's charity bib program, we are able to provide ongoing, all inclusive support for these events by managing their fundraising efforts.

We'll continue to add to this space as we receive updates from our partners. Charity bibs will be available for each posted event when they open so grab your calendar and start making some (tentative) plans!

What's New?

The 2023 season began with VR's Saguaro Half in February and will conclude with Navajo Yes's Four Corners Marathon in December. By the end of the first quarter of 2023, our charity bibs already raised as much as they did in the entire 2022 year! For the 2023 race season, we have 30 events from 8 event partners; we can't wait to see where you race and what you raise!

As a reminder, new for 2023, you can choose your choice of charity to raise funds for.

They must be a 501c3 and US-based but otherwise, pick the cause that matters to you!

AND NEW FOR 2024 Events, "Your Choice" charities can be international! You can choose the arts program in your neighborhood, a global health charity, and countless options between the two! Hop on over to our blog for all the details!

Looking for a virtual event to keep your training on track? In that case, we have charity bibs available for ANY of the Virtual Running Club events (based on current event availability at the time of registration).
