  • Hold at least one annual educational meet-up to go over the environmental benefits of veganism, running adventures and improving Animal Run to better serve the community


For most people, the purpose of a foot race is crossing the finish line — a tremendous thing.  But why not expand human potential by giving each person the opportunity to do MORE good, compounding the effects long after race day?

The graphic represents the Animal Run community creating a halo of positive impact.

The first four inner circles, significant forms of energy, are achieved by showing up on race day. The three outer circles are optional, require more effort, but greatly multiply the effects of creating a better, more loving and sustainable world.

This is who we are. Thank you for being a part of Animal Run!
