Race to End Duchenne in an Event Near You!
Being part of the Race to End Duchenne team is easier than ever! Participating in run/walk events in your community is great way to raise much needed awareness and dollars for Duchenne.
How Do I Find A Race?
It is important to find a race that meets your fitness level. If you are a beginner, look for a 5K run and/or walk. Be sure to inquire about the details of the course such as inclines, etc. As you improve your fitness level you can look for races with an increased distance such as 10K's, half marathons and eventually the ultimate challenge: a full marathon!
These events are usually well advertised. Resources for finding local races include:
- Local newspapers
- Local news channel websites
- Local running and/or athletic stores
- City/County websites
