Operation Jack Marathon

The roots of the Operation Jack Marathon


DECEMBER 26, 2014

california_half_full_logoThe Operation Jack Marathon & Half Marathon and Satellite Runs are back for 2014! 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.
