How are the Proceeds used?

Run for God is a Nonprofit Corporation. 100% of the proceeds from our races are used in one of two ways.  When you register, you will be helping to take the name of Jesus to the running world through the "Who do you say that I AM?" ad campaign.  We are seeing eternal decisions made in response to the ads in Runner's World Magazine!  If you'd like to know more, please visit  The second is to keep the day-to-day operations of Run for God moving.  Our revenue comes from books, t-shirts, sponsors, and races.  


Sticky and Pinky

Why do we wait for the last runner to finish before handing out awards?

We get this question often, and we understand that some of you fast runners may be waiting a while before getting your award. But here at Run for God, we have decided that EVERYONE should experience that magical finish line experience no matter what their time may be. For this reason, we hope that you will hang around and help us cheer every runner in, and be inspired by those who just a short time ago were saying “I can’t” and are now saying “I did.”
