The Run For A Reason Charity Program presented by Bank of America is for passionate runners like you who want to make a difference and change lives.   Connect your passion with purpose and commit to  fundraise for a meaningful cause close to your heart.  Earn a FREE entry by committing to fundraise for any of our official charities below.


EXTENDED: A $150 Value - FREE if you register to run and fundraise for a charity by February 15, 2017!

For a limited time only, anyone who registers to run for an official Run for a Reason charity between December 13, 2016 - February 15, 2017 will receive a FREE MilestonePod and can join in the MilestonePod Leaderboard and Challenges.  It's a great way to train and log miles for a chance to win great prizes all while raising money and supporting a cause close to your heart.

The MilestonePod is easy to use and provides great insights beyond just mileage and pace - helpful things like cadence, footstrike, run efficiency and more! You can also use the Leaderboard to track your progress against other participating Runners Of Steel, or to challenge your friends and follow each other's progress all training season!
