  • Should COVID restrictions change before Race Day, there is a possibility that all registered onsite participants will need to take part virtually. In which case, though refunds will not be issued, a race shirt will be mailed to each registered participant.

    God-willing, we look forward to seeing all onsite participants at Kiwanis Park again this year.  For virtual participants: Though we will be separated by distance, it is a BEAUTIFUL THING TO BE SO UNITED IN PRAYER!

  • 10K, 5K, 1mi, and Prayer Walk Registration Options

    As in years past, we are so happy to offer a variety of race options: 10K Run, 5K Run/Walk, 1 mi Walk.  And now, The Prayer Walk is the newest addition our race options.  It is our hope that the Prayer Walk will open up the door for EVERYONE to be able to “Nun Run”.  Whether it’s a long prayerful walk or just a few steps, the Prayer Walk is for those who want to take a Rosary Walk, a stroll with your little ones, or for those who – due to health limitations or age – are unable to take part in the Run physically but are prayerfully united to us in the spiritual exercise of intercession and prayer.

  • Virtual participants will be mailed a packet containing the official Nun Run Race Shirt and race bib

    Register by February 17th to receive your shirt by Race Day on March 4th, 2023.  If you register between February 17th and March 3rd, your packet will be mailed the week of March 6th.
