Run for a Reason


Register to run for 412 Food Rescue at the 2022 Dick’s Sporting Goods Pittsburgh Marathon! With so many distances to choose from – the marathon, half marathon, five-person marathon relay, 5K, kids one-mile, toddler trot, and pet walk – you’re sure to find the race that’s right for every member of the family!

Why run for charity?

By choosing to Run For A Reason, you will be a part of something greater than yourself, make an impact on those around you, and create lifelong memories with “teammates” who become “family.” Let’s face it — there’s no better feeling than crossing the finish line and knowing that those miles counted for MORE! It’s time to connect passion with purpose and Run For A Reason in 2022.

How it works

Runners will have the option to select a charity program to run for in Race Roster. After registering and selecting a charity to fundraise for, charity runners will receive their own fundraising page through Race Roster that they can use to collect donations.

Run for FREE

If a charity runner selects to fundraise for one of our official charities, they will be eligible for a refund on their registration fee (essentially earning a FREE registration!). In order to receive a refund, charity runners must raise a minimum amount of money for the organization they selected. Fundraising minimums vary by event and are listed below. If a charity runner does not reach the minimum, they will not be eligible for a refund. Please note, in order to receive a refund the funds raised must be dedicated to only one official charity.
