Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/05/2013 -- In the past if someone missed out on a spot for a marathon, chances are that person could go online to the race's website and choose for a short list of charities to run for.
Now that list is growing and growing. Some races have waiting lists with charities fighting to get on the list. It is a runners market when it comes to the charities, with the non-rofits working harder and harder to recruit runners for a specific cause.
“[Charity running] is the ultimate win-win,” says Chicago Marathon race director Carey Pinkowski. Charities develop a revenue stream and increase their public visibility. Their training programs and cheering sections provide support for runners, many of whom never would have attempted a marathon (or half-marathon) without the pull of doing something for the greater good.
The growth is spreading to other sports too. Walking, cycling and other endurance fundraising events are seeing increased success.
