Put Your Excuses Behind You

There are a million and one reasons not to run on Jan. 31. It's cold. It's dark. Your heater and fuzzy slippers are calling your name. But we're asking you to put your 'buts' behind you, and join us as we host REI's No Buts Night Run.

Jan. 31, 2018

FAQs:

To get started, pledge to run on Jan. 31 by entering your information in the form above. Then, on Feb. 1, we’ll ask you to confirm you ran. This is on the honor system, but we’ll be looking for your photos on Instagram and Facebook and following your journey! For every person who pledges, REI will donate $1 (up to $10,000) to the American Hiking Society, the only national organization that promotes and protects foot trails, their surrounding natural areas, and the hiking experience. This is a simple way to help support a great cause with a national footprint. 

Run for a Cause

For every person who pledges and runs in the dark, REI will donate $1 to the American Hiking Society up to a total of $10,000.

So how does this work...?

If you are running on the open road we require you to wear a safety vest, headlamp and taillight. Our number one priority is safety, and although we won’t be able to police everyone who participates, we highly recommend you follow our guidelines for running at night on an open road. If you are running on the trail, for your own safety we recommend bringing a headlamp and hand flashlight.

Do I have to wear safety gear?

We’re glad you asked! Use the #NightRun hashtag on your social media posts and also tag @RagnarRelay and @REI.

Is there a hashtag?

For every person who pledges to run, and then follows through with their pledge, REI will donate $1 to the American Hiking Society, the only national organization that promotes and protects foot trails, their surrounding natural areas, and the hiking experience. This is a simple way to help support a great cause with a national footprint.

How does the donation portion work?

We'll send you an email to verify if you've followed through with your pledge, but we aren't concerned about your mileage or distance. Just let us know if you ran, and we'll make sure REI makes a donation on your behalf.

Do I need to submit my miles?
