Back on My Feet, a national organization operating in 13 major cities across the US, combats homelessness through the power of running, community support and essential employment and housing resources.
Back on My Feet seeks to revolutionize the way society approaches homelessness. Our unique model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead. For all in need, we aim to provide: practical training and employment resources for achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community that offers compassion and hope. For all with the capacity to serve – volunteers, donors, community and corporate partners – we seek to engage you in the profound experience of empowering individuals to achieve what once seemed impossible through the seemingly simple act of putting one foot in front of the other.
Operating in 13 major cities coast-to-coast, Back on My Feet uses running and community to motivate and support individuals every step of the way from homelessness to independence. Our success is measured not only by the health impact of miles run, but also by how many individuals obtain education, employment and housing.

We ask that all registrants certify that they will comply with the current CDC Guidelines and other directives from the Governor of their respective state in participating and completing their half marathon. Our strong advice is to "RUN ALONE" or with your immediate family members. We all need to do our part to "stop the spread". Be safe and do your part.
Here are some ways to be safe and still get your workout, training or half marathon completed:
RUN ALONE! We'll have plenty of opportunities to run in groups when this is all over. If you do run with a partner maintain 6 feet or more distance at all times.
Use common sense about where you run and when you run. Going to run 8 miles in a busy park on a nice Saturday morning probably isn't your best choice. You may need to change up when you run and where you run.
Vary your routes. This is a great opportunity to switch things up, just be sure that you are running in a safe area with wide paths, roadway or trails.
Be aware of your surroundings. We are all vying for some of the same space when we are out exercising. Be courteous of others and providing plenty of room when you pass. Crossing the street when possible is a great strategy.
Consider more workouts from home. Lots of great things are happening with technology, online classes and exercise instruction.
