Challenge Overview:

The Pride Run believes in giving athletes a fun way to make their race extra special. In addition to providing you an excellent racing experience, we are excited to support your racing success through our fundraising program, The Pride Run Charity Challenge, powered by Reason2Race.

Since program inception in 2016, the program has collectively raised over $10,000 for dozens of causes.

We have found that there is at least one characteristic that all athletes share, the desire to reach our finish line. Most often we have different motivations for doing so, yet we all have the same end result in mind. Participating in The Pride Run Charity Challenge will provide you yet another way to reach that goal. Through this challenge, you will be able to share your racing goal with your friends, family, and community in a way you never have before. You make them part of your journey and part of your success. You experience what most of us have at one point or another in that sharing your goals with others helps to make them happen!

With this challenge, we invite you to choose a Reason2Race. You may select one of our partner charities (click image below) or race for any charity of your choosing. Whether your goal is doing your first 5k or 10K, beating last year’s time or setting your PR (personal record), participate in The Pride Run Charity Challenge and share your goal(s) with your community and friends. Watch how including others in your journey helps your dreams become reality!

There is no fundraising minimum to participate, and we encourage you to set a high goal, at least $1,000. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
