Registration for the fourth annual Lace Up for RAINN 5K Race is in full swing, and hundreds of runners and fundraisers across the country are planning to lace up their running shoes on May 20, 2017. The annual event raises funds for critical services, like RAINN’s National Sexual Assault Hotline, and activates communities to learn more about sexual violence.

Runners can participate in Lace Up for RAINN in two ways: attending the race in Washington, D.C., or participating “virtually” in their own communities. Ask your family, friends, and colleagues to register with you as a team and support survivors together through one of the following events.

On-site racer registration for Lace Up for RAINN in Washington, D.C. is available and encouraged!
