A charity runner is a participant in a road race, usually of half marathon or marathon distance, who raise money or awareness for an established 501(c) organization. For more elite marathons, such as the World Marathon Majors, runners who are unable to obtain a qualifying time for their gender and age group can gain entry by running for an official charity affiliated with the race. Other races provide charity runners with free race entry, training, team shirts, and encouragement as incentive to raise money for local charities.
