Alberto Ferrari shows how you can calculate running totals in DAX:

A very common calculation in DAX is the year-to-date calculation (YTD), which aggregates values from the beginning of the year all the way to a certain date. A simple implementation uses the predefined DATESYTD function:

Sales YTD :=

DATESYTD( 'Date'[Date] )
