2018 Thompson Island 4k Trail Run

One Island

Two Days

Three Great Opportunities


  1. TEAM BUILDING: Your employees will run together and play together during the Trail Run. They’ll have fun, strengthen their relationships with each other – and thank you for making it happen!
  2. COMMUNITY RECOGNITION: Your company will benefit from exposure to more than 2,000 runners and networking opportunities available through sponsorship.
  3. GIVE BACK: Your sponsorship helps bring thousands of Boston Public School students to Thompson Island each year where they learn, explore and grow.

Become a 2018 Race Sponsor and Join the Corporate Team Challenge!

Do you have a competitive work place? Here is your chance to show the rest of Boston that your team is the best in town. Become a Race Sponsor and join the Corporate Team Challenge!

The Corporate Team Challenge is a great opportunity for some healthy competition between clients, competitors and colleagues. With 1,000 runners each day there will be plenty of networking and fun to be had. Outrun and out fundraise your competitors. After all, bragging rights are priceless!

Increase the Impact of Your Run! Help us hit $140,000 and bring 140 more Boston Public School students into our multi-year program packed with hands-on science education and character development initiatives!

Fundraising is a great way to increase teambuilding before the run even starts; you can fundraise within your individual network and set up an internal office competition, and then celebrate your successes together at the race! Every dollar you raise will be matched by Thompson Island’s generous friend, Tom Niles, so you can fundraise knowing your efforts will have double the impact!
