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 4 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:

Lace Up in D.C.
Historic Congressional Cemetery (1801 E Street SE, Washington, D.C.)
Registration Fee: $40

Join RAINN and hundreds of local runners for a 5k race on May 20, 2017, at the Historic Congressional Cemetery. This course will be chip-timed and USA Track and Field certified. Packet pickup will be available the week before the event and at the event on race day. Sign up through this page as an individual, or create or join a team.

Lace Up in your community
Location: Nationwide
Registration Fee: $30

The virtual 5K allows you to support survivors wherever you live. On May 20, organize friends and family to walk, run, or even bike a 5K in support of survivors. Sign up now and ask your friends to join.
