RunTough for Team Owen 2020

Sat September 26 - Mon November 30

As promised, we wanted to send info on the run. On September 26th, runners across the country are participating—virtually and very literally—in RunTough for Team Owen, to benefit The ChadTough Foundation.
Because this event is virtual, you can run any day leading up to RunTough weekend. That said, we encourage you to participate on Saturday, September 26, to show solidarity with Team Owen runners/walkers and the Ten other ChadTough teams participating on this date across the country.

Your route. Your time. Your pace. Your community.

You can run, walk, bike, swim indoors, whatever suits your style. is a great source for mapping out your 5K. Just do your thing and then post your route and/or race day photo to social media with #OwenTough2020 and the link.
Use fitness tracking apps? Bonus points for running “O”s (at a track, in a park … be creative!) for Owen and sharing an image of your route.
Search #OwenTough2020 to get ideas and see some of the ways runners are keeping Owen in mind as they prepare for the event.

The same “your route, your time” flexibility applies, but we’ve also mapped out a few routes below that will allow you to pass by our official water station - Owen’s house. 
Please never hesitate to reach out  –


The event remains flexible, but here are links for a few 5K (3.1 mile) course options:

If you track your runs on a fitness app, you can use the circular parking lot to start your run with an “O” for Owen!
