Four-time Boston Marathon winner Bill Rodgers and Olympic gold medalist Frank Shorter are scheduled to run together in the All-State Life Insurance Boston 13.1 Half Marathon in September to help the race raise funds for The One Fund.

The race, on Sept. 15, begins and ends at Suffolk Downs and goes through East Boston and Revere. Proceeds from the event will benefit OneFund.

Rodgers won the Boston Marathon in 1975, 1978, 1979 and 1980. Shorter won the 1972 Summer Olympics men's marathon in Munich, the first American to win an Olympic marathon, and won the silver at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal.

Participants can register, request printable application and find fee information on the race's website.
