Team 100 Mile Club at Ragnar SoCal: Running 200-ish Miles for our Kids


Can $10 change a life? It sure can.

For the price of a latte and scone at your favorite coffee shop, you can help a child achieve true personal success through goal setting and exercise.

On April 6-7, 2018, 12 runners from all walks of life and fitness levels are coming together for one reason…The 100 Mile Club!

12 runners, 200 miles. One cause.

Kicking things off in Huntington Beach, this dedicated and talented team will Run, Walk, Drive, Sleep (maybe), and Repeat under the California sunshine, beneath the stars at night, and over epic coastlines.

Some of us are super-fast and some are not-so-fast, but we’re a team and we will finish STRONG! What could be better?? We know! Helping 100 Mile Club Kids and leading by example, THAT’S what!

This campaign has a huge goal of helping 1,000 children participate in the full 100 Mile Club Program in 2018. It costs just $10/year to help one child participate in this incredible and award-winning program.

Your donation of $50 or more will earn you a special gift from 100 Mile Club. We think you will love it. 🙂

Can you help? Sponsor one child or many…it’s up to you. Then, share this all over the place so we can reach our goal.

1,000 kids x $10 = $10,000 LET’S DO THIS! Click below…

Megan Bloch and her infectious smile, coming all the way from Boston, MA, shared a secret language with her sister until second grade. So cool.
Kara Lubin, who embraces her inner tortoise, ran the inaugural Caballo Blanco Marathon in Urique, Chihuahua, Mexico…which actually turned out to be a 50K…so she still has not run a marathon!
