Partners

Partner Information for SAR Races

SAR is proud to be active in our community by partnering with so many great organizations. Over the years SAR has donated thousands of dollars to local non-profits.  On this page you can see who benefits from our races which might help you to decide which race to run depending on which beneficiary you want to support.  Additionally, we could not put on races without the partnership of our many sponsors also showcased below.  Finally, you can see at a glance who each race director is in case you want to get in touch regarding beneficiary or sponsorship information.
