Run on the Relief Nursery Virtual Eugene Marathon 2021 Team

The Eugene Marathon has shifted to a virtual race for 2021, but we are still partnering!

Like you, we’re disappointed that we cannot gather together; however, we are still excited to have people support us virtually. Runners can still participate in the virtual marathon for free by fundraising for Relief Nursery, via the Run for a Reason program.

How it works: Runners can register for our team here. Instead of paying your race fee, you fundraise on behalf of Relief Nursery. Fundraising goals are $250 for the Marathon and Half Marathon; or $100 for the 5K.

You will have access to marked courses in Eugene and Springfield, a race app and custom race kits. And of course, there will be a unique medal for 2021. You can read more about the virtual race here.


Not interested in running, but would still like to support the Relief Nursery team or a specific team member with their fundraising efforts? Donate here.

“One of my core values is to listen to and live more from my heart. When I saw the opportunity to partner up with the Relief Nursery this year in fundraising in addition to running, my decision was made. I believe in building up individuals so they can in turn help others, and wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for the many helping hands that lifted me up when I needed it the most and continue to support me today.”

– Erin Lawrence, Chambers Construction

“I have been an avid runner for the past 8 years.  During this time I have ran many races accomplishing the goals I have set for myself including running a full marathon and several half marathons.  When I found out that I could fundraise for a local organization like the Relief Nursery, and run the Eugene Half Marathon, I was excited to get on board and contribute in any way possible.  Let’s do everything possible to help the kids and families in our communities have successful, safe, and healthy lives.”
