Race for a Reason

Saturday, October 13 | 10am

The fall R4R was Saturday, October 13 at 10am. This race began and ended in downtown Mt. Pleasant at the historic Ward Theatre. The race followed a section of paved trails through a few of the city’s parks and trails.

R4R is perfect for runners looking to join their love for running with their desire to do good in the world. R4R has a history of helping others, raising money for those in need locally and globally. This year, 100% of the registration fees go directly to helping the under-resourced in Myanmar. A team of generous folks have offered to cover the cost of hosting this event so that that every dollar you donate will directly benefit those in need.
