The Ecology Action Centre’s Green Avengers team of eco-superheroes is lacing up for the 8th consecutive year to run and walk in the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon for a cleaner, greener Nova Scotia.
When you join the Green Avengers and commit to getting at least 16 donations to sponsor your race, we'll subsidize your race fees! You only pay $25, and EAC covers the rest. As a Green Avenger, you can run or walk any of the available distances: 5K, 10K, 15K, Half Marathon, Full Marathon, or Youth race. Your donations can be any amount.
What you commit to: You get at least 16 fundraising pledges of any amount for the EAC to support your race. You come to at least one group run per month.
What we offer: We pay for part of your registration fee, so you only pay $25, regardless of which distance you’re doing. We check in regularly about your fundraising goals, and provide lots of support to help you reach them. We organize regular team meetings with guest speakers on useful topics like training tips, nutrition, stretching, and more. AND you get to run (or walk) with an awesome super-hero cape and costume!
