2017 Lincoln Marathon

May 7, 2017

40th Annual Lincoln Marathon & Half


Project Purple Lincoln Marathon & 1/2 Team


Lincoln Marathon and Half

Project Purple is excited to be a charity partner of the Lincoln Marathon & 1/2 for the third year in a row. If you are interested in running with the 2017 Lincoln Marathon charity team, please fill out the application below. For more information about the Lincoln Marathon, please visit their website at


The Lincoln Marathon is a special, fun, and inspiring event. Some of the “little things” that make it special include aid stations with lids and straws; neighborhoods that actively participate by serving water, gummie bears and jelly beans; local bands placed on the course to add motivation; and finishing on the 50-yard line of Memorial Stadium. The Lincoln National Guard Marathon and Half Marathon is also one of the largest events in the nation put on completely by volunteers – not a single person is paid to organize this event. Those on the Marathon Committee volunteer hundreds of hours to make sure this event is one of the best in the nation.
