How It Works There will be 6 treadmills in the bar, each will total 26.2 miles, the length of a marathon.

One person (Blake Dirickson) will run a full marathon by himself.

The other 5 treadmills will be available to teams of people who will collectively run a full marathon.

Each runner will hopefully find a sponsor to sponsor their run, or you can sponsor yourself.

The event is open to the public, kids are welcome and always love the event! Food and drinks will be available for purchase.

About The Cause

About Farm Sanctuary:
Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals. Today, Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization. We have rescued thousands of animals and cared for them at our sanctuaries in New York and California. At Farm Sanctuary, these animals are our friends, not our food. We educate millions of people about their plight and the effects of factory farming on our health and environment. We advocate for laws and policies to prevent suffering and promote compassion, and we reach out to legislators and businesses to bring about institutional reforms. Farm Sanctuary remains committed to ending cruelty to farm animals and promoting compassionate vegan living through rescue, education, and advocacy efforts. Please join us. A compassionate world begins with you!

Vision:
A world in which humans embrace a vegan ethic and practice compassion and respect for all species.

Mission:
To protect farm animals from cruelty, to inspire change in the way society views and treats farm animals, and to promote compassionate vegan living.

Values:
We engage people where they are on their journey to a cruelty-free lifestyle. We support only nonviolent and respectful methods to achieve our goals. Ending factory farming and promoting a plant-based diet is best for animals, human health, and the environment. Animals exist for their own purposes and are not merely consumable resources. We support incremental change. All human and nonhuman animals should be treated with compassion and respect. Positive human-animal connections and interactions are an effective means of education and transformation.
