InMotion Running is sponsoring an in-store relief run to help raise money for the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund, an organization devoted to supporting the victims of the fires destroying Australia.

The event will take place on Saturday, and will cost $35. Participants have the options of an 8 a.m. half-marathon or a 9 a.m. 5K group run. The half-marathon course will provide coffee and bagels after the run for all runners, and a hydration station will be provided. All the money raised will go as a donation to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund.

With more than 25 people whom have lost their lives and an estimated millions of animals killed, inMotion running and the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund are trying to help a community that is facing what is nothing short of an ecological disaster. The event will take place at 1880 30th St. Suite B, Boulder. Any runner who can verify proof of payment at reliefrun.com.au will receive an Australian-themed gift for their donation.
