Below are the nitty-gritty details of what we expect of our Relay Runners.
Read on, fill out an application, and hit submit!
In general, we’re seeking runners that are looking for an epic event with massive impact. If that’s you, welcome home.
Selection for the team is competitive. We encourage you to apply early and join our Ambassador program to get connected with the organization right away!
Are you a runner looking for more? Are you interested in exploring what you’re capable of? Then you’ve come to the right place. Any runner interested in training with our team to run a marathon a day for six consecutive days while raising funds for MS should submit an application.
Each runner on the team commits to raising $10,000. We hear you, that’s a big, hairy goal. But, before you pass on this opportunity because of this amazing fundraising challenge, know that many runners before you were also hesitant because of that goal, and many runners before you still applied, and many runners before you exceeded their fundraising commitment! Our Alumni page is littered with every day runners just like you that crushed this fundraising goal.
Trust us, the goal matches the epicness of this adventure. You can do it, we can help!
Its assumed that not everyone applying for this event will have experience of running 160 miles in one week. I mean, c’mon, that would be ridiculous of us to expect. So we’ve got you covered! As a part of the team, MS Run the US provides a training program, nutritional advice, and guidance from a group of running experts from within the organization, like our Founder Ashley Schneider who ran solo across America by herself, and our many Alumni runners who love to aid others in this experience.
During the application process we ask you where you’d like to run within our relay route, and we do our best to accommodate your interests. Here are the nitty-gritties of running your segment:
• A training program, tips and suggestions for training.
• Nutritional guidance for endurance running.
• A fundraising program, advice and support.
• Featured Relay Runner page on msruntheus.org.
• Meals for the duration of the segment.
• Access to the comforts provided by the RV, SAG vehicle, and Road Crew team.
• Sleeping quarters and clean linens, with optional pillow fights, for the duration of the stay.
• Bathroom and showering facilities.
•Inclusion into our private social media groups.
