4K Trail Run

Thompson Island Outward Bound 4K Trail Run


Wednesday, May 25 and Thursday, May 26, 2022

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.

Team Sponsorships

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:

TEAM BUILDING Your employees will run together and socialize together during the 4K Trail Run. They’ll have fun, strengthen their relationships and thank you for making it happen!
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 Your sponsorship helps bring thousands of Boston Public School students to Thompson Island Outward Bound each year, where they learn, explore and grow. Learn more here.

Individual Runners

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.  

Fundraise to Increase Your Impact

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.
