Welcome to our 12th annual  OhioHealth Race for a Reason scheduled for April 26th & 27th, 2024. This year's race is comprised of six different events:


The event is hosted by the AECOM Ohio University Center for Sports Administration and Ohio University’s Valor military ministry. The race continues to grow in popularity on campus, in the Athens community, and in the surrounding area.

When participants, volunteers, and supporters hear, "What is your Reason?", they understand we are talking about the hundreds of student organizations and nonprofits we serve.  The idea behind participating in RFAR is to encourage on-campus and off-campus organizations to participate in a unique and innovative event that thrives on teamwork and community while raising money for the community we love.  Participants are encouraged to race for a “reason” that they are passionate about. $10 of each individual’s race registration fee goes back to the cause of their choice.
