The Jefferson Healthcare 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 Healthcare Rhody Run are returned to the community in the form of funding support for school sports programs and youth oriented non-profit organizations.
Their goal is to produce a run where all runners, champion and beginner alike, can feel as if it’s their race. And they try very hard to live up to their motto: “The Run that Cares for the Runner”.
