Beyond Celiac is taking our entire 2020 Step Beyond Celiac 5K series to the virtual streets with a multi-city tour for individuals and teams across the country to support celiac disease research efforts. Five event dates are planned between August and October! Join us for one or many with our 3 and 5 city tour options.

The Step Beyond Celiac 5K is a family-friendly event and fundraiser for Beyond Celiac. We encourage all participants to raise funds by running or walking 3.1 miles either in the event cities or right where you are in support of research efforts for treatments and a cure.

Lace-up your running shoes, train, raise money, and run (or walk) a 5K (3.1 miles) to improve the quality of life for children and adults affected by celiac disease.

All participants receive a Step Beyond Celiac 5K shirt if they register before the t-shirt deadline.

5 City Tour runs:

  • Boston –  August 9 – 16
  • Kansas City – September  13  – 20
  • Philadelphia – September  26 – October 3
  • Dallas – October 10 – 18
  • Denver – October 18 – 25
