About This Activity

When you run in Run for Babies, you give hope to nearly half a million babies born too soon each year. Held in conjunction with our annual March for Babies, Run for Babies and March for babies brings together thousands of people from your community to support programs that help moms have healthy, full-term pregnancies. And it funds research to find answers to the problems that threaten our babies.

Phoenix Run for Babies is a chip-timed and measured 5K through the streets of downtown Phoenix, beginning and ending at the State Capitol. Competitive runners will have the opportunity to compete for one of our custom medals, given to top overall finishers and top finishers within designated age groups. After the race, we invite you to join the over 8,000 walkers and eat a picnic lunch while enjoying live entertainment. Meet up with your family to partake in activities in the Kids' Zone and make plans to visit the Mission Tent to learn more about how March of Dimes has been helping babies for more than 75 years.

While Run for Babies is held in conjunction with March for Babies and we invite runners to partake in all of the festivities, we have implemented the following measures to ensure the two events do not conflict for participating runners and/or walkers:

-          Run for Babies registration will have a designated, separate day-of registration area

-          Run for Babies will commence 15 minutes prior to March for Babies

-          Run for Babies will have a separate finish line

Each registration includes a Run for Babies t-shirt.
