2014 Run Across America

2014 marks our 13th year of sending 4K participants across the country, and the second year we will be RUNNING ACROSS AMERICA! The second annual 4K for Cancer Run Across America will leave from San Francisco, CA and finish in Baltimore, MD.  The route will forge a new and exciting route across the country and will get to see the most diverse terrain of any of our trips.

The route is a 42 day, 4000 plus mile cross country trek starting near the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and finishing in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor atop Federal Hill. On running days, runners will be required to run around 8 miles one of their teammates.   There will be rest days built in every 3-5 days of the trip.  The running pairs will be dropped along the route in two mile increments.  At the end of each runner’s running segment they will be picked up by a chase van.

Run Route

Please visit the FAQ section, email 4Kforcancer@ulmanfund.org, or message us on our Facebook for more information.

The Run finish July 26th around 12:00 pm atop Federal Hill in Baltimore MD.  The address is 300 Warren Avenue Baltimore, MD 21230.
