Operation Jack Marathon
The roots of the Operation Jack Marathon
The Operation Jack Marathon & Half Marathon and Satellite Runs are back for 2013! The race was created out of necessity to complete the the 2010 Operation Jack schedule and was intended to be a one-time event. Due to overwhelmingly positive feedback, it has become an annual race benefitting the Operation Jack Autism Foundation.
The Operation Jack Autism Foundation serves to benefit autism-related charities nationwide.
