Whether or not you're a marathoner, we invite recreational runners of all abilities to join our
community by subscribing to the
HCMC e-mail listserv. Who knows? After awhile, you just might end up being a marathoner, or a
half-marathoner, after all!
Harvard College Marathon Challenge (HCMC) is an organized group of Harvard students, employees, and alums that raises money,
through running, to benefit the health, education, and welfare of Boston-area youth and families. Since its inception in
2005-06, HCMC runners have raised over $782,000 for causes such as the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA), Project
HEALTH, and the American Medical Athletic Association (AMAA).
In 2019-20, by virtue of their fundraising efforts, our official HCMC participants will be among the
lucky few to earn invitational charity entries to run the 124th
Boston Marathon on Monday, April 20, 2020 (Patriots' Day). Between now
and then, participants will meet and train with other Harvard runners, including many who are not
running in the Boston Marathon but who just want to run with other Harvard community members.
