About The RUN828 Foundation

The Run828Foundation is 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina. Our mission is to promote healthy, active, outdoor opportunities to individuals and families in Western North Carolina. We do this by providing opportunities, support, education, and funding. We host and sponsor community running events and provide structure and administrative support for the North Carolina Mountain Trail Runners running club. Run by a volunteer board of directors, we rely on funding through member enrollment, local business sponsors, and funds received from RUN828 sponsored races.
