Race to Make a Difference in a Child's Life

Child abuse happens every day, in all walks of life. And no child should have to suffer at the hands of an abuser. You can help give children back their childhood by racing the Andrew Jackson Marathon or Half Marathon that benefits the Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse! The Center, which provides services to children and families affected by child abuse, puts families back together and saves the lives of children.

We're a Boston Qualifier

If you have goals of qualifying for the Boston Marathon, then come run the RunAJM Jackson Marathon! If you're one of the first three males or females to BQ in the RunAJM Jackson Marathon 2024, we'll pay your 2025 Boston Marathon entry fee!
