2020 Thompson Island Outward Bound 4K Is Going Virtual
The Thompson Island Outward Bound 4k Trail Run is going virtual for 2020! This virtual event will still be the most unique race in Boston filled with opportunities for companies to engage their employees in virtual teambuilding activities, while supporting Thompson Island’s important programs for Boston youth!
Our goal with the virtual race is to provide all sponsors:
TEAM BUILDING You will have multiple opportunities for your employees to participate in fun, engaging virtual activities that bring them together and help build comradery during this time of quarantine and social distancing, including training challenges, virtual trivia nights, private post-race celebrations, and much more. COMMUNITY RECOGNITION Our goal is to ensure all sponsors receive maximum recognition, from social media shout-outs to inclusion of promotional products in our race swag bags. Companies will have multiple opportunities to have their support recognized to all of our registered runners. GIVE BACK The COVID-19 pandemic has had major financial implications for Thompson Island. Your race sponsorship will ensure we can continue to serve the needs of Boston’s youth while preserving the more than 200-year legacy of Thompson Island – so that as soon as it is safe to do so we can begin bringing children back to our shores!
Secure your team today and help ensure the Thompson Island Outward Bound 4K Trail Run will be back on Island in 2021!
Fundraise with your team to win some great incentives and make an even bigger impact on our island!
Encourage and incentivize your employees to participate in the fundraising initiative by pledging a matching challenge. The corporate match will be added to the team’s overall fundraising and go toward the team fundraising incentives. Runners can make a direct impact in the life of a Boston Public School student by conducting their own fundraising campaign. It costs $2,300 for one BPS student to participate in our multi-year Connections program. By committing to raise $2,300 you will ensure a student can visit Thompson Island 12 times during their middle school career.
Not running with a company? You will still have a chance to join the fun! We have spaces available to individual runners! For $25 join in the fun with virtual 4K Mapped Runs, Post Event Virtual Celebrations, and more! Our $75 VIP Registration upgrades you with all the virtual fun, plus Thompson Island Swag Bag and Harpoon Beer!
New Awards categories will be announced soon for both team and individual runners.
