According to Runner’s World, a record of more than half a million runners crossed the finish line for a marathon in 2014. While 5Ks still remain the top race for runners, Running USA notes that running races are more popular than ever in the U.S.; marathon fundraising has become an increasingly important component to running the race. Running a marathon is no simple feat, but coming up with online fundraising ideas for your race is easy!
Whether your fundraising for training or running for charity, Mightycause makes it easy to start your marathon fundraiser. Have you considered including a link to your online fundraiser in your marathon fundraising letter? Try getting a group of runners to compete to run for charity. Or, just raise funds to help defer costs of training, new gear and travel expenses associated with your out-of-town marathon.
