Old Bill's Fun Run
About, Details

Twenty-four years ago, an anonymous, philanthropic couple, fondly known as Mr. and Mrs. Old Bill, envisioned a collaborative event to support local nonprofits. For the first time, organizations came together in an efficient, unified fundraiser that raised awareness of community needs. Over the last two decades, more than $173 million has been raised for local organizations, and it has inspired similar events around the country.

Old Bill's Reimagined Details

Everyone is welcome to join in, show support for, and learn more about Jackson Hole’s nonprofits. Participation requires only your presence and a willingness to have fun!

Why a Run?

Mr. Old Bill loves to run, and one day while on a run he got the idea for an annual community-wide fundraising event to benefit all local nonprofits.

Who Can Join?

Everyone is welcome to enjoy Old Bill’s 2020 festivities, learn about local nonprofits and celebrate philanthropy.

When is Old Bill's?

Old Bill’s is a fundraiser held each summer. In 2020, the Giving Season runs August 1 – September 18. Virtual and remote festivities festivities will be held Saturday, September 12 as part of “Run Day Reimagined”. Click here to read more.

Where in Jackson?

In response to Teton County public health metrics, the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole will not host the gatherings that were tentatively scheduled for Old Bill’s “Run Day Reimagined” on September 12. The Foundation will now present exclusively virtual and remote festivities on this date.

Community members are encouraged to independently run/hike/bike/walk the 5K of their choice; Diaper Derby participants are invited to crawl a shorter distance such as 5 yards. Several 5K route ideas are available HERE. (Note: the Foundation is not collecting runner times.)

Check back for more information as event details are finalized.
