The National Black Marathoners’ Association (NBMA) is a not-for-profit organization. It is open to everyone, regardless of your athletic ability or previous marathon experience. (Over 40% of our members have never completed a marathon and many are walkers.) Our objectives are to:

  • Encourage Black Americans and others to pursue a healthy life-style through long
    distance running and walking.
  • Serve as a vehicle for Black American distance runners across the nation to meet in mass at a single marathon.
  • Provide scholarships to deserving high school boy and girl distance runners. (We’ve awarded over $24,000 in scholarships.)

 

USA Track & Field announced a new partnership with the National Black Marathoners Association (NBMA) to support health and wellness programs across the country. The one-year commitment provides grants to assist the NBMA in developing a training program targeting AfricanAmerican faith-based communities, as well as contributing directly to NBMA’s college scholarship program.
