Race Distances & Fundraising Commitment Levels

- 10K / 6.2 miles: $250
- Lifesaver: $100 - If you already have a bib to the 2021 MCM or 10K, but also want to raise funds for Team AFSP, you can register as a Lifesaver on Team AFSP. This option is ONLY for runners who have already secured a bib through the standard lottery process.
* Fundraising minimums must be raised by October 31, 2021. Please see “Important Rules & Requirements” section below for details.
Important Rules & Requirements (Please Read!):
- AFSP will cover your bib fee in full.
- AFSP is not responsible for any travel expenses and cannot assist with booking transportation or accommodation. The participant is responsible to organize transportation to and from the event.
- You have until October 31, 2021 to reach your fundraising goal. If you do not reach your goal by October 31, 2021, your credit card will be charged for the remaining amount.
- August 15, 2021 will be the last day you can drop out without being responsible for achieving your fundraising goal. After August 15, 2021, you are required to reach your mandatory fundraising minimum by October 31, 2021 or your credit card will be charged the remaining amount.
- AFSP will not transfer or issue any refunds for funds raised. If you already raised funds and you drop out before August 15, 2021, your funds raised cannot be moved to another AFSP event (Out of the Darkness Walks, Paws for Prevention, Golf Tournaments etc.) and we will not provide any refunds.
- Once you sign up for the marathon, you cannot switch to a 10K bib. However, you can switch from a 10k bib to a Marathon bib before MCM's registration opens (usually some time early summer).
- Registering on this site will allow you to start fundraising, but will NOT register you for the race. In order to receive a bib entry for the MCM, you first will need to register yourself through this website. Then, after you register here, AFSP will register your with MCM and pay for your bib. Once the payment has been made by AFSP, you will receive an email from the MCM team confirming your participation and official registration with MCM.
Everyone who raises $250 or more will receive an official Team AFSP Dri-Fit shirt in the mail.
