Become a Team Gluten-Free™ Member!
Team Gluten-Free™ members receive:
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to complete a personal goal and, at the same time, support celiac disease research and awareness programs and send celiac children to camp.
At this time, there are no Team Gluten-Free™ specific events. There are, however, an endless number of existing races for Team Gluten-Free™ members to participate in across the country! Many races are hosted by running clubs or large corporations and registration is open to everyone. Check with your local running store or online at marathonguide.com. The race registration fee (payable to the race organizers) allows racers to participate in the event. Money raised on behalf of Team Gluten-Free™ will be used to provide scholarships for gluten-free summer camps and celiac disease research and awareness programs.<back to top>
Yes! We have different training programs for various race distances. Whether you’re a beginner walker or an experienced runner, you will receive a training schedule that will help you cross the finish line. If you are participating in a half or full marathon, you will need to commit to approximately 4-5 days of running/walking a week (for three to six months) in order to properly prepare for your event (training time will vary according to current training level and selected race distance).<back to top>
