We have 4 full-marathon entries and 17 half-marathon fundraising entries available through our non-profit partner – Marathon Kids.
To get a slot, runners must pledge to raise $750 for Marathon Kids, PLUS pay the race registration fee – $105 for the half and $125 for the full. Runners must fulfill their pledge to raise a minimum of $750 by November 20th to support the cause. At that time if the minimum amount has not been reached, a charge will be placed on their credit card for the remaining balance to be raised, which guarantees registration for the race.
As an added incentive, every runner fulfilling the $750 pledge will receive 50% off on their next Rogue training program.
This is a great opportunity to support a great cause and race on a FAST Houston course!
Entries will be handed-out on a first-come, first-serve basis. If interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
