United Way of Southwest Colorado
The Thirsty 13 Half Marathon partners with the San Juan Brewfest, one of the biggest fundraisers of the year for United Way of Southwest Colorado. A portion of every race registration goes towards the great work that United Way does in our community. We are proud to support them!
9-R School District Bus Driver Appreciation Fund
The Thirsty 13 is also proud to support our local schools and school bus drivers. Each year we donate a portion of race proceeds to a bus driver appreciation fund created by the race and the Durango Running Club. This fund is used to recognize all the bus drivers and the great work they do to get our kids to school safely each day. These drivers have a tough job and often go unrecognized, so we make sure they know just how important they are to our community.
