Run for a Reason

Join your favorite charity team and run for a reason in the 2015 DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon.

Thank YOU runners and charities! Motivated by battling disease, homelessness and hunger, supporting education and the arts, saving animals and advocating equal rights - each year, thousands of charity runners take to the Pittsburgh streets for the DICK’S Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon. 

More than 3,000 charity runners raised over $1.2 million this year to support 100+ organizations and programs both locally and nationally. The Run for a Reason charity program strengthens ties between the running community and charities thereby assisting the charities in providing much needed financial support.
