Particularly for marathons, it is common to find charities associated with various races. Marathon organizers allotted their limited spacing and entry slots for charity organizations. Runners are given the option to sign up to run particular races, especially when open marathon entries are no longer available.
In some cases, marathons are organized as a fund-raiser for charity organizations (funding raised via entry fees).
