How we got here.
Susan (Executive Director) & Bob Briggs founded the San Diego Half Marathon 501(c)3 non-profit in 2011. The mission was to not just produce premier running events, but to also catalyze volunteering, benefit charities & business in our local community, and promote youth wellness.
In 2020, adapting our mission in a Covid-19 world, Million Mile Charities was started to provide an organizational focus on our charitable efforts, starting with the Million Mile Half Marathon which raised money for childhood cancer research and our charity partner, CURE Childhood Cancer.
In 2021, the Screen to 5K program is being introduced to promote youth fitness & wellness. This virtual run for youth, family, and friends gets you away from your screens to get fit on your way to a 5K goal. Rest assured, the San Diego Half Marathon remains in our plans for the years to come, along with our new Epic Run Series.
The heart and soul of what we do is our team, a group of runners, retired professionals, and local business executives that work tirelessly to support our mission.
You can support us, either through donations, in-kind sponsorships, or volunteering.
