Lander Community Foundation Challenge for Charities

In order to achieve the Lander Community Foundation’s mission of promoting philanthropy and creating a stronger Lander community, the foundation sponsors the annual Challenge for Charities, a community-wide fundraiser, that culminates in the Lander Half Marathon, 5K and Kids' 1 Mile.  

Early registration is highly encouraged.  Prices increase by $5 on June 28 for the Half Marathon and 5K.  1 Mile prices will remain the same.  Register early to select your preferred t-shirt size.  Those registering after June 18 will not be guaranteed a t-shirt.  

The parade begins at 10 AM.

Stick around for the amazing fireworks display in the evening - it will be an unforgettable experience.  

If you are coming from out of town, we encourage you to book your lodging early.  4th of July is a big event in Lander and draws in a very large crowd.
