The Thompson Island Outward Bound 4K Trail Run is the most unique race in Boston. It takes place on Thompson Island in the Boston Harbor and offers a great opportunity for companies to enjoy a team building activity with their employees, while also supporting the programs Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center offers to Boston’s youth. This year we will be holding both a fully virtual and a smaller modified in-person event. Our on-Island runner spots will be reserved for Team Sponsors, so secure yours now!
Virtual Trail Run - Sept 22nd - Sept 29th
On Island Trail Run - Sept 29th and Sept 30th
Our goal with the 4K Trail Run is to provide all sponsors:
Not running with a company? You will still have a chance to join the fun, by registering for the Virtual portion of the 4K Trail Run! For $50 join in the fun with virtual 4K Mapped Runs, a Thompson Island 4K Trail Run T-shirt, and more!
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.
