The interactive site offers a variety of information regarding the event, from registration details and descriptions of the Equal Footing Foundation, to sponsorship opportunities and training tips for runners.

"They have great experience building sites for national and local organizations ranging from sports teams to technology companies to government agencies. This site is where most people will go to learn more about the event and so we needed a proven and reliable team to put it together for us. I believe knocked it out of the park for us."
