Team Children of Peru participants are encouraged to set their own fundraising goals. We are asking for a $1,000 (and then $1,500) minimum, but why stop there? Every dollar you raise for the Children of Peru Foundation helps us fund our different programs for poor kids in Peru. We will use the dollars you raised to make a difference for poor children in Peru.

Please note that runners gaining entry via charity partners have to meet their fund raising commitments. Applicants are required to provide credit card information as a guarantee. Failure to comply can result in entry cancellation.

"Can I join if I already have my entry to the Big Sur International Marathon ?"

Runners who have already registered for the race and want to join our team so that they also can run for a cause are more than welcome!!
Email bigsur (at) childrenofperu.org for registration forms specifying that you already have your entry.

Why Run for the Children of Peru Foundation?

Since its creation, the Children of Peru Foundation has been working with several groups, association and NGOs to help poor children in Peru in the areas of health and education. We have built schools, we bought an ambulance, we are sending surgeons every year to provide free surgeries to children in need and we want to do much more.

Whether you finish in record time or just cross the finish line, your participation in the Big Sur International Marathon will have made a difference in the lives of hundreds of Peruvian children and their families.

Email us at bigsur@childrenofperu.org for more information and for registration forms. Please specify if you need a guaranteed entry or if you are already registered for the race.
