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.
We have a certain number of spots each day - and they can sell out quickly! Get your company in for their preferred day! 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! We have limited spaces available to individual runners on Wednesday, May 25. You get chip-timed entry, round-trip ferry transportation, a quick dry race t-shirt, full BBQ dinner and beer. Prizes go to the top 3 individual runners in both male and female categories! 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.
