Run For Free


Eugene Has Heart LogoWe partner with the Crowdrise platform to make fundraising easy and fun!  Using Crowdrise allows Eugene Marathon race participants to create their own fundraising webpages. There are two ways to fundraise while you train for one of the Eugene Marathon races.

Run for a FREE!

Choose one of our charity partners, raise $175 or more and your entry to the race is free! Your registration fees will be covered by the charity and you will be on your way to the finish line!  You will first sign up on the Crowdrise page to commit to meeting the charity’s fundraising minimum.  The charity will reach out to you and provide you with a discount code which you will use to formally register for the race and receive your free entry.

Why Should I Run for Free?

Running for Free is the best way to raise maximum funds for your charity of choice. This program works with local Eugene non-profits to engage collaboration and success through fundraising minimums and group efforts.

Choose your own Charity

Crowdrise makes it easy to create your own fundraising goal and get started raising money for a charity of your choice (or one of the official “Eugene has Heart” charities) on your own.   If you go this route you will need to register and pay for the race through our traditional registration system, then create your personal fundraising page through Crowdrise. This option is for fundraising only, and does not offer free race entries or have a fundraising requirement.
