Miles For Books

The more your kids run during the month of March, the more your site can earn to purchase books. The Miles for Books incentive program is back! Miles for Books provides funds for Rising New York Road Runners sites to spend on books. This promotion has funded over $200,000 for NYRR Youth Programs to spend on books since 2010.

How Does It Work?
It's simple: The more your kids run in March, the more money your site earns to purchase books for your school. The books can go to the school or classroom library, or directly to the kids. Enter your March miles into STRIDES and we'll track your progress. Qualifying sites are assigned a reward level based on the total miles run and that reward level equates to a dollar amount. You'll be notified April 6 of the reward level achieved.

Reward Levels

  • Level 1: $75
  • Level 2: $100
  • Level 3: $150

Earn a Bonus $25!
Sites that already have a First Book account or can qualify and sign up for one through this unique link, will earn a $25 bonus to be added to their respective reward level. First Book provides brand-new, high-quality books and educational resources to schools and programs serving kids in need. Find out if you qualify.

If you don't qualify for First Book, your site will receive the reward amount as a digital Scholastic Teacher Store e-gift certificate.

Miles for Books is made possible largely due to the generous support from the Astrof family.
