Relay AcrossEl Salvador 2020
March 14 - 21, 2020
Join the Run For Central America team on March 14 – 21, 2020 for the Relay Across El Salvador! This is a high challenge, endurance event for people who want to make a life-changing impact in the lives of families living on less than a dollar a day in Central America. We will be running 220 miles across El Salvador over the course of five days in relay teams made up of five or six participants. These five days include travel and tourism days. Our goal for each team is to raise $25,000, or approximately $4,000 per relay team member. This is a long run and a lot of money, but if you train hard and hustle with your fundraising, you can totally do it!
The run begins in the mountain town of San Fernando located on the Honduran border in the far Northeast, and we will finish in the Southwest fishing village, Metalio, located on the Pacific Coast. Each relay team will have a van with a driver to carry their supplies and the support of a bilingual staff member from ENLACE. A highlight of the experience will be daily tours of community development projects designed and led by local church and civic leaders. We will visit a gravity-fed water system, a school, chicken cooperative, homes, eco-friendly stoves, and composting latrines built for families in need. All proceeds from the run will go to ENLACE, a Central American community development organization with 26 years of experience mobilizing church and civic leaders to make an ongoing impact in the lives of over 100,000 people in El Salvador and Guatemala.
