In May 2020 when the world seemed to stop turning and we were in our first Covid lockdown, our team decided we would try to run "virtually" the North Carolina Outer Banks.  We wanted to keep our bodies and minds busy and  make a difference in our community by raising funds for North Carolina food banks.  We invited a few friends to come along and soon we started a movement! Coast to Coast Challenge was the next challenge we launched to accommodate our friends who wanted to cover more than the 300 miles of RunOBX! In the last 3 years, we have had over 11,000 athletes participate in our virtual events.  But more importantly, as a  virtual community, we have raised over $90,000.   For a full list of projects we have funded check out GIVE FULL SEND.  RunOBX and Coast to Coast Challenge were the catalyst that begin the launch of Full Send Racing and Full Send Promotions and will always be near and dear to our hearts.

What other people say

Don't take our word for it!  Listen to what some of our past participants have to say! 

I am been motivated to walk every day so I don’t get behind.  I have lost 10 pounds.  You are a huge part of that success.   Thank you, thank you, thank you!  SJR

Full Send Racing is an amazing organization. They have put on a number of fantastic virtual racing events that have kept me and my friends running together apart. I've done a bunch of virtual races, but the ones with Full Send have been THE BEST. Chad and Renee find creative ways to make this fun and provide lots of engagement and rewards along the way. My local running group created a team for their Run OBX/Run The Ridge Challenge and everytime a new challenge opens up, we all join again and convince our friends and families to join! I was able to 'race' virtually with my brother who lives 100 miles west of me over the summer and I got my parents who live 100 miles east of me to participate in the Winter Wander with me over the winter. It's been a fun way to stay connected and stay active. And it has been so organized and FUN! Can't wait to see what Full Send has up their creative sleeves next! TL

I have done two challenges with Full Send Racing. They are fun and keep me moving consistently! Even though they are virtual, there is a sense of camaraderie through the Facebook group and all the fun achievements along the way. You pick your distance, and mode of race bike, run, walk, swim or everything combined! You even get to see where you are on the map each day. I highly recommend this company. They have been fabulous to work with!  MLW


What is FULL SEND?  FULL SEND is a Lifestyle - it is an attitude.  FULL SEND is 110% Committed. All Out. No Take Backs. No Do Overs. Full Send is an active lifestyle and apparel brand.  We believe in being fully committed and engaged in all we do. Full Send Racing was founded in May 2020 by Chad Towne and Renee Griffin.  While the racing industry was being closed down as a result of Covid 19, Chad and Renee figured out how to weave together their experience in the racing industry, passion for endurance sports and desire to help nonprofits to create FULL SEND RACING. We work hard and we play hard and we take this same attitude in every event and every piece of apparel we create.

RACE FULL SEND - Chad and Renee are both endurance athletes who have a background in race event timing and production.   Our goal was to take the things we valued most in the endurance industry and bring them to our athletes.    In our first six months as a company we have worked with over 10,000 athletes and we recognize each athlete comes to the start line with different skills,  talents, experience, and goals.  Our job is to provide each athlete with the highest quality experience and motivate you to move out of the comfort of the start line, push through the miles of the race (no matter the distance), and celebrate you at the finish line.   Check out all our events at Race Full Send

LIVE FULL SEND -  Chad and Renee believe that your accomplishments should be celebrated with the highest quality gear.  We work closely with our athletes and clients to thoughtfully create gear through the lens of function, style, and practicality.   All apparel is designed and printed by small businesses in Wilmington, NC. 

GIVE FULL SEND - One of the driving forces behind Full Send Racing is to make a positive difference in our community.   Since the creation of Full Send Racing in May 2020 we have been fortunate to work with 13 nonprofits,  We have helped these nonprofits raise over $110,000.   For our current projects check out Give Full Send.
