Runners get ready for the 2014 ‘MS Run the US Relay’!

I love running. I completed my first 10K a few years ago and I'm hooked. Running with a purpose is even better! If you're a runner looking to take your running game to another level, then the MS Run The US Relay may be just for you! This charitable race to raise funds for research to help find a cure for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is unlike no other! It's basically a race across the country--REALLY! This five month relay race is set to begin on April 16th in Los Angeles, California and end in New York City. 21 runners across the country will essentially tag team across the country taking on 140+ mile segments spanning 5-10 days in length to raise awareness and raise monies for the cause.  That is pretty awesome!

Special shout out to Money Mutual, whose financial support of this event allows 100% of funds raised to go towards research. TV talk show host Montel Williams, who was diagnosed with the disease in 1999 is the official celebrity host and will be meeting runners at set checkpoints throughout the race. I think this is pretty amazing!! So for all you runners living on the relay route, or for those looking to support a noble cause, sign up and run with a purpose!
