The Bad Idea Tour – ‘Supernatural’ Stars Train for Seattle Marathon

4 Min Read

It’s been a month since Creation Entertainment’s Salute to Supernatural convention in Charlotte where it was announced that several stars from Supernatural are teaming up to run the Amica Seattle Marathon to fight child hunger with Random Acts.

Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins all currently star in Supernatural, and they are being joined by former co-stars Rachel Miner, Rob Benedict, Adam Fergus, and their friend and singer/song-writer, Jason Manns to form what they’ve been calling “The Bad Idea Tour.”

On the Crowdrise website, they go into more detail about what’s happening.

Pet alligators. Marshmallows in salads. Mullets.

Humans have had some awful ideas throughout history. But some terrible ideas are so good, you’ve got to try them to see how they turn out… and the Supernatural cast may have hit upon the best bad idea of all time:

We are going to run the Amica Seattle MARATHON.

That’s right. On Sunday, November 25, we’ll attempt to run 26.2 miles to fight childhood hunger!

Worldwide, too many struggle with hunger. In the US alone, 1 in 6 children don’t know where their next meal will come from. It’s a huge problem, but we’re gonna do something about it: for this year’s Random Acts’ Endure 4 Kindness event, we’re taking on the Amica Seattle Marathon to help feed children in many of the poorest areas in the US and globally.

We’ll endure 26.2 miles of pulled muscles, chafed nipples, and out-of-breath whining… but with your support, we’ll get over the finish line. Donate to help us make a difference!

According to the website, more than fourteen thousand dollars has been raised by almost four hundred people in just over a month, and we still have two months left to go!

Though it’s likely that all contestants have been training, Misha Collins has been sharing some videos on social media updating us on how his training for the marathon is going.

If you haven’t already donated to support some of our favorite people and two great causes, you can click here to donate directly. If you’d rather, check out the E4K Website to sign up to raise your own funds for Random Acts.

If you still need a little bit more information about what the E4K is, everything you need to know is this video.

The E4K is happening November 22-25, and the Amica Seattle Marathon takes place at the tail-end of that on Sunday, November 25. That means there are two months left to turn this “bad idea” into something good, and if there’s anybody who can make it happen, it’s these guys!
