We have already seen the TFFT family show up in big ways in 2020, providing the necessary support and resources to scholars during school closures. Don’t stop now! By running #TheFartherTogetherMarathon in 2020, you will join a unique group by running a marathon without the fanfare! While it sounds completely impossible, we are here to make it possible. 


HOW IT WILL WORK: On the weekend of your choice in October or November, you will run 26.2 miles! The how is up to you. 

A few ideas -

  • Do it all in one go! It might sound impossible, but why not take on a unique and difficult challenge to match this unusual year?! You will get bragging rights and Team TFFT swag to make the deal even sweeter.

  • Physically join other Team TFFT athletes to run The Farther Together Marathon together! We have groups of athletes this year in NYC, Chicago, Charlotte, and Charleston.

  • Enlist friends and family to join you along the way. We will provide Team TFFT swag for all of your pacers that pledge dollars and miles.

  • Go together! Run 26.2 in a relay with a team.

  • Break it up! Run 26.2 over the course of the weekend.

We will support you in developing a plan to make it feasible – a route, water, Gu’s, and bathroom stops.


Importantly, your 26.2 will be a feat of perseverance, resilience, and commitment of a different scale than a typical marathon. People will be inspired and eager to support your dedication.

Your feat will generate immediate impact. Every dollar you raise this year is critical. TFFT scholars are back in school after a three-month interruption. The team is dedicated to closely monitoring and supporting each scholar to ensure no time – or dream – is lost. Your fundraising right now is critical to the success of TFFT and ensures scholars reach their fullest potential. 

Let’s commit to doing the unthinkable! Join Team TFFT in running a virtual marathon while building the brightest future imaginable for orphan and vulnerable children in Tanzania.
