The Jefferson Health care Rhody Run is organized and produced by the Port Townsend Marathon Association, a charitable non-profit organization whose mission is to foster and encourage runners of all ages, both in the school system and in the community at large. Nearly all the work that goes into making this race happen is done by volunteers. And proceeds from the Jefferson Health care Rhody Run are returned to the community in the form of scholarships and assistance to both individual runners and to the programs that sponsor them.
Our goal is to produce a run where all runners, champion and beginner alike, can feel as if it’s their race. And we try very hard to live up to our motto: “The Run that Cares for the Runner”. So if you have any comments — positive or negative — or suggestions for improvement, please contact us and let us know.
