Run for a Reason
Date: January 19, 2020
ALS Texas has been one of the official charities of the Chevron Houston Marathon and Aramco Houston Half Marathon Run for a Reason Charity Program for eight years. The Run for a Reason program allows race registrants to support the official charity of their choice while participating in the marathon or half marathon.
Check out the recap of the 2018 race.
Fundraising for Registration Entry
“Fundraising for Registration” (FFR) entries guarantee your spot for the 2018 Houston Marathon or Half Marathon in exchange for your fundraising for the ALS Association of Texas.
Here is how it works:
- Pick your run. Both full marathon and half marathon spots are available. There are a limited number of spots, so make sure to reserve yours before they run out.
- Click here to register for the race. All runners must raise a minimum of $750 in order to guarantee a spot for the full or half marathon and to get your race fee waived. If $750 is not raised, your credit card will be charged the remaining balance.
- Fundraise, fundraise, fundraise! You’ll receive support and encouragement through phone calls and emails about fundraising and training, and regular happy hours with other runners. The more you raise, the more awesome rewards you’ll get along the way (see below for levels).
- Run on Sunday, January 20, 2019 as an ALS Texas “Fundraising for Registration” runner!
Remember – We pay your race fee (valued at $140 for the full marathon and $125 for the half marathon) if you raise the minimum of $750.
Fundraising levels: $750, $1,500, and $2,500
The more you raise, the cooler the rewards become! Stay tuned for more about fundraising rewards.
