Run for a great cause

How to get Started

As a participant of the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon, you may choose to fundraise for one of our Official Charity Partners. Running or walking for a charity can motivate you and allow you to make an impact in the lives of others.

Follow these steps to begin supporting a great cause:

  1. Choose your charity from one of our 2020 Charity Partners and contact them directly first. Each charity partner has unique guidelines, incentives and a registration discount code that you will need when you register.
  1. Register for the race (using your promo code) through Race Roster, the Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon’s registration platform. You will have the option to select your charity PLUS receive your own fundraising page to customize and share with your friends and family.

The Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon also has some additional incentives (in addition to your charity of choice) to get your motivated along your fundraising journey!
