Join Your American Cancer Society at the
2015 Blue Cross Broad Street Run!

Secure your registration today long before the race lottery opens, which gives you an extended period of time to surpass the $500 fundraising minimum. For your support of the American Cancer Society, each athlete also receives the following amenities:

  • Race race hospitality areas at the Start & Finish for you and your supporters.
    Includes: Bag Check, DetermiNation only Port-A-Potties, lots of great food, and more!
  • VIP packet pickup at the race expo, so no need to wait in line outside
  • An inspiring (and delicious) pre-race dinner to celebrate your accomplishments as a DetermiNator!
  • Professional coaching led by our expert volunteer coaching staff.  Includes weekly group runs, training plans, and several training resources for stretching, core, running form, and more.
  • A personal fundraising mentor who will help you surpass the $500 fundraising minimum, understand how your fundraising dollars impact patients and their families in your local area, and even give you an opportunity to get involved yourself with the mission of the Society.
  • Weekly group runs and water station starting at the iconic Rocky Statue. Tuesdays 6:30pm and Saturdays 9am. All paces and non-DNation athletes are welcome! Group runs will begin in February

Your registration with DetermiNation is also your registration in the race itself. The individual fundraising goal is $500. Each athlete must fully commit to their fundraising goal before they will be registered in the event. The deadline to recommit is March 15, but you have until May 17 to meet your fundraising minimum.

The team fundraising goal is to raise an average of $500 per athlete, and team fundraising supersedes individual fundaising so consider creating a team! Please read the race registration waiver on the next page carefully.
