All New. All Virtual. All Virtuous.

As you run away from all things 2020, there’s no better way to start the new year than by doing something that will . . .

  • make you feel good about your heath; and
  • make you feel good about helping others.

There’s no better “feel good” event in the lineup of great Kalamazoo/Portage running events than the One One Run, a 38-year tradition that marks a new beginning and gives you the chance to see your entry dollars go for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kalamazoo!

So run with us, virtually and virtuously. Your participation will help kids build character, gain new experiences and fulfill their potential! Read about our Clubs here.


Registrants after December 15 are too late to get the shirt and personalized bib (we had to get them ordered for those who did), but you can still MAKE YOUR OWN BIB) (click here) and ALL registrants are eligible to be in the drawing for one of three pairs of HOKA Cliftons!

What are HOKA Cliftons? They deliver a great combination of soft and light. They feature a streamlined silhouette and upper shoe made from engineered mesh. They’re outfitted with a plush collar that eases Achilles pressure.

By entering the John Daley One One Virtuous Run, you are eligible for our give-away drawing of one of three pairs of the shoes made possible by our generous sponsor, Gazelle Sports.   No purchase necessary, so if you are not participating in the run, you can still enter the drawing by sending an email to and Say “Free Shoes Entry”.

We Need You and You Need This!

We’ve gone all out to make this run special. Long-sleeve shirts (if you sign up by December 15), special bibs in your race packet, 16 different races courses (you only have to run one), results and more. Read the ways we’ve made it special!

What have you got to lose! We’re offering a money-back guarantee!
