Run Domestic Violence Out of Town


We are a coalition of 10 Chicago area domestic violence agencies. Every year we recruit a team of runners for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon, the Chicago Half Marathon/5k and the CARA Ready to Run 20 Miler to raise support, money & awareness for domestic violence survivors. Join our team of runners!

Bank of America Chicago Marathon | Date: October 7, 2018

We have 3 more runner spots left! If running is not your thing, you can support the runners by volunteering at our cheer station. Email Tasasha Henderson at for more information about volunteering.

CARA Ready to Run 20 Miler | Date: September 16, 2018

Want to challenge yourself with a nice, long run, but aren’t quite ready to run a full marathon? Run a 20 mile race for Run DV! Enjoy the beautiful sights of Montrose Beach and the lakefront path as you run to raise awareness and funds for local domestic violence organizations. We also need volunteers to hand out water to runners. Email Tasasha Henderson at if you want more information about registering as a runner or volunteering. Everyone has a role in ending domestic violence!

Chicago Half Marathon/5k | Date: September 23, 2018

Not ready to run a full marathon yet? Run the half marathon or 5k in beautiful Jackson Park. Not a runner? No problem; you can walk in the 5k. If you are a member of a church, sorority, or other type of social group, gather your members and race with us as team! Raise awareness about the impact of domestic violence while also raising funds for crucial services for domestic violence survivors.  Email Tasasha Henderson at for more information about registration.
