RUN FOR IMMIGRANTS was created to give honor to the immigrants of the United States as we are a land of immigrants. Mother Lode Sports takes a strategic approach to its charity events and its partners and is fully committed to helping people achieve their dreams. We are here to encourage people for their first half marathon, second, twentieth or becoming an American citizen.

Mother Lode Sports supports everyone from every nationality, country and religion to partake in our events. Running has become a popular sport in the world and is full of energetic competitors from all walks of life and we at Mother Lode Sports embrace them.

This year’s Ambassador for our event is Qismat Amin. Watch the video below to learn more about him and why he has become an inspiration for this year’s race.


“I had always hoped that this land might become a safe and agreeable asylum to the virtuous and persecuted part of mankind, to whatever nation they might belong.” – George Washington
