Each year after the race the Hamptons Marathon team makes donations to support local East End groups. In November 2016, the Hamptons Marathon donated $100,000 each to Southampton Hospital, Southampton Youth Services, the Southampton Arts Center, and Southampton Volunteer Ambulance Corps. The 2017 race will support Southampton Hospital, Southampton Youth Services, the Southampton Education Foundation, the Southampton Arts Center and the Southampton Ambulance Corps.  Over the past 10 years, the Hamptons Marathon, Inc. has donated over $650,000 to support local East End organizations.

The primary source of these donations were the runners’ race fees, but none of this could have been accomplished without the support of the Hamptons Marathon’s sponsors as well as the generous support of the race’s local partners, friends, and volunteers who generously donate their time and expertise year after year.

Raising money for charity is an excellent way to make your participation in the Bridgehampton Half or Hamptons Marathon & Half an even more meaningful experience. We have two ways to participate. You can go to Crowdrise for the Bridgehampton Half or Crowdrise for the Hamptons Marathon & Half and support one of our Official Charities or, for guaranteed entry, you can join one of our Official Charity Partners and run for a reason. 

If you are interested in becoming one of our charity partners, please contact
