In 2016 the Hamptons Marathon & Half is partnering with Crowdrise to encourage all participants to unite and fundraise and run for a reason. We're making it easier than ever to let all of our runners, volunteers and supporters get involved.
In 2007, we set out to create a marathon that we would love to run. We were committed to the runners who trained for and traveled to our race and the Hamptons community that hosted us. Since the inaugural race with 500 runners, we have grown into an acclaimed destination race that highlights the beauty of the East End and we have given over $550,000 to local organizations. We are a 501(c)(3), and donate all of our proceeds and we are excited to make a difference in our new home in Southampton Village. Our Hamptons Marathon & Half Official Charities are Southampton Hospital and Southampton Youth Services. We will also be supporting Southampton Village Volunteer Ambulance, the Southampton Education Foundation, Flying Point Foundation for Autism, Team Red White and Blue, and Southampton Arts Center.
Additionally, runners can raise money and join a Hamptons Marathon & Half Charity Partner Team for guaranteed race registration and an opportunity to be a part of the community of giving on Crowdrise. Our Charity Partner Teams can provide you with a race bib, training, and the camaraderie of a team as you make your miles count.
