Life Changing

A Changed body, a changed life, a community of support, and a deeper understanding of how God plays a role in all of it.

Starting January 23, 2023

Let’s get Real

Is Running or Walking a marathon on your bucket list but don’t know where to start? The Couch to Marathon Challenge meets you where you are and shows you that big goals are possible with the right community and focus. The result is a changed body, a changed life, a community of support, and a deeper understanding of how God plays a role in all of it.

The Schedule

The Marathon Challenge group is perfect for just about anyone who has ever had a desire to finish a marathon. We encourage anyone, from those who have never run before to those who have already run a half marathon or longer, to join the Marathon Challenge Group so that you can realize your goal, dream, or bucket list item. Imagine having thousands of people encouraging you along the way as you progress towards the same goal in unison. This is the perfect way to get to that marathon finish line!

Our Story

Over the past 12-Years, Run for God has been known for making big dreams come true. Our proven plans and coaching have now been taught to over 225,000 students in over 6,500 communities around the world. We've taken thousands of "I can't do that" and turned them into "I just did."

"Run for God has been a big encouragement to me throughout my career."

Our Coaches

You will notice pretty quickly that there are two different coaching styles during this journey. This was done completely on purpose and for an excellent reason. It is our hope that our approach has led us to a more thorough and well-thought plan than one person would accomplish.
