The Sunburst Races
From downtown South Bend to Notre Dame -- it's the 30th Anniversary running of the Sunburst Races. All events are run on traffic-free city streets through South Bend & Mishawaka parks and neighborhoods. The course follows the St. Joseph River and finishes inside the University of Notre Dame Football Stadium - Home of the Fighting Irish
The marathon and half marathon courses are both USATF certified. The half marathon is part of the Calumet Striders Gold Cup Series. The marathon is a Boston qualifier and a registered race of the Chicago Area Runners Association. We have great volunteers and the best food you'll find at any race!
All of the proceeds from the Sunburst Races go directly to expand pediatric services, facilities and equipment at Memorial Children’s Hospital. This event directly benefits local children and families.
Join us for a wonderful run.....and a finish you'll never forget!
