The big C marathon is a run to remind all of us to set goals, to break scary things down into smaller, more easily-digestible pieces, to keep moving forward, to hold our loved ones in our hearts, and to do something that might be terrifying with dignity – and maybe even a smile.


We welcome ALL paces and would be thrilled if you decided to do this as a tribute to a loved one – knowing that we have your back, and will encourage, cheer, and not leave until you have crossed that finish line…


the big C marathon started as a race that was a metaphor for a cancer diagnosis. The only distance offered that first year was 26.2. The last two years we have also offered a half marathon because many people wanted to participate but felt the marathon distance was just too much. This year we have decided just as cancer is made easier with friends helping along the way, so is a marathon. With that in mind, we encourage you to call on friends and divide up this race distance any way you would like. It will be your own race relay and you can run one mile or 25. Of course  for the marathoners out there we still offer our 26.2 miler.
