Here's our step-by-step guide to getting involved
Begin your One Run For Boston adventure by registering to run a stage of the relay.
Just click on the run a stage button or tab to browse the stages and select the one you want to run. If a stage already has a runner’s name by it, click on the run with me button or choose another.
Up to 25 runners can join a standard stage. Depending on location, group stages can accommodate between 100-1000 runners.
Every runner is given an ORFB account and profile page on the website. You will need to personalise your page with a banner image, a smaller profile picture and some information about yourself.
Then you can start to upload photos of your ORFB adventure to your very own picture gallery!
Your profile page also doubles as a fundraising platform. Go into your account settings to choose a fundraising target - $250, $500, $1000 etc. We hope that every runner will try to raise at least $250. Together we aim to raise $1 million for The One Fund Boston. You will not be charged if you do not reach your target.
Use the social media buttons on our website to share One Run For Boston far and wide.
Encourage your running mates to sign-up and run a stage. Ask friends and family to check out your profile page and sponsor you.

Anyone can run, provided they are able to maintain an average pace of 10 minutes per mile for the duration of the stage. Under 18’s must run with a responsible adult.
The first person to sign up for a standard stage becomes the lead runner. It is their responsibility to plan the route between the start and finish points for that stage.
Group stages take place in major cities along the route. They are shorter and designed to encourage mass participation.
It is the joint responsibility of all runners to keep the relay running to time. Please do everything in your power to prevent delays. We’re all relying on you!
