This is the donation page for the big C marathon event.
100% of donations will go towards cancer research. We have partnered with Fred Hutch for the fourth year in a row, so that we can help them continue their amazing research, and all of the proceeds from this event will go directly towards funding their projects with the 'greatest need'.
Please visit www.thebigcmarathon.com for more information.
After her own ‘big C’ diagnosis in 2016, Cat Schwartz founded the big C marathon, with all proceeds from the race being donated to cancer research. It 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 is a small, out-and-back course run mainly on paved trails. There will be 6 aid stations every 4 to 5 miles. Finishers will receive an engraved slate coaster and a ticket for a glass of Cockrell Hard Cider (with proper ID). Sign up at www.thebigcmarathon.com Check-in will start at 7:00am day of race.
