Run to Support Arizona COVID-19 Relief!

The Arizona Run for COVID-19 is a virtual "on-your-own" one mile and 5k race where 100% of the proceeds go to St. Vincent de Paul's COVID-19 Emergency Fund. Registration is open to runners, walkers, bikers, and more!


Get Involved in Three Easy Steps!



We suggest you make a donation* of at least $15 per person to our St. Vincent de Paul donation page (link below) under the name of the participant. Then, fill out the Registration Form.


Go outside and run, walk, bike, or participate in any other of your favorite activities! We have both a one mile and 5k option for your race. 


Submit the form (linked below) by June 30th with your name, race choice, race time*, and all other necessary information to be entered into the raffle*.​

*You do not have to participate in the race to donate! However, if you wish to be eligible for the winner's and raffle prizes, you must register and submit a time.

**If you intend to compete for the mile and/or 5k winner's prize, you must RUN the race (no biking, skating, etc.) and you must send us an email or complete the race time form with proof of your time (i.e. Strava, Nike Run Club, Garmin, or another reputable source) and we’ll log your time to see if you win!


Race Details

Whether you're a regular participant looking to help St. Vincent De Paul or an elite runner looking for a friendly competition, our two different races (one mile and 5k) and our randomly-drawn raffles and winners' prizes will give everyone an opportunity to win! Although anyone can register by running and then filling out the registration form below, the suggested donation is $15, which pays for bottled water and to-go meals for a family of five.

After the suggested donation, run, walk, bike, skate, or participate in any of your favorite activities for whichever race you signed up for – whether it be the mile, 5k, or both! Just a reminder, a 5k is 3.1 miles. We highly suggest either running in the morning when it is cool or late at night after the sun goes down in order to avoid the heat and run your best time! Make sure to participate before June 30th, the last day to enter. 

When you have a race time that you are happy with, fill out the form titled "Race Time Submission Form" with all necessary information so that we can add your name to the raffle prize. In addition to raffle prizes for randomly drawn winners, we have prizes for runners with the best time. If you are intending to compete for the mile and 5k winners' prizes, send us an email with proof of your time (i.e. Strava, Nike Run Club, Garmin, or another reputable source) and we’ll log your time to see if you win. The mile and 5k winners' prizes consist of four different prizes: one for both the male and female winners of each race. If the same person wins two prizes, one prize will go to the runner-up of the 5k race. Remember, you don't have to race as fast as you can to participate, take it at your own pace!
