It's More Than a Race...

…it’s a journey of moments that will challenge, inspire and change you! The American Liver Foundation’s Liver Life Challenge® offers a ticket to America’s most desirable endurance events. Our endurance training and fundraising program will lead you across the finish line with coaching, training and tools for success.

From the moment you meet your coach and teammates to the moment you cross the finish line, the Liver Life Challenge provides an unforgettable experience. You’ll achieve your fitness goals and help those with liver disease – so they can create moments of their own.

The benefits of our marathon program include :

Registration Fee.
Expert Coaching and Team Trainings with our Official Marathon Team Training Partner, Chicago Endurance Sports.
