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.
Thank you to our 2021 Sponsors and Runners! Some conquered the steep hills of Thompson Island and some ran their race from afar! All for a great cause! The 4K Trail Run has already raised over $300,000 in support of our transformative STEM and outdoor programs for Boston public middle schoolers, helping more kids across our city discover all they are and all they can become.
Our goal with the 4K Trail Run is to provide all sponsors:
Not running with a company? 2022 Individual Registration will open up 2-3 months prior to race.
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.
