@APRIL how does one go about signing up for something like this? Do you have to participate in a certain amount of smaller races first?

You only have to qualify for the huge ones like the Boston marathon, and even then it's only because of limited space for extremely high demand. You qualify running these smaller ones anyone can do.

Do the profits even go to a charity at all?

I don't know a lot about the Rock n Roll Marathon series in St. Pete, but the one in DC does a lot of good for several charities including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I've worked with them on it a few times. I work on a lot of local marathons and triathlons with Tricolumbia and they support a few local charities so I get to see where the money goes and who it supports pretty directly. However, Tricolumbia is a non-profit and Competitor Group (the people that run the Rock n Roll series) are not a non-profit, so I'm sure they make their money first.

I belong to The Runners Room, don't know if you guys have this out there. I ran with them last year. We could sign up for Marathons thru them, but pretty much anyone can run.
This running clinic was amazing and taught me how to run properly.
Loved my running team. But since I got my treadmill I stopped going :(

Roger has done like a bazillion of these things and his work is as an event manager for these types of events. He didn't post his time, but I bet it was good.

While April only does this to get out of doing anal for a week or so while her buttocks heal.
