About This Activity

On Saturday, July 1, 2017, people of all walks of life, ethnicities, religions, and sexual orientations will RISE UP together across the nation for the world’s largest running/walking event. With a collective voice of footsteps, we will run to the cadence of liberty, freedom, and justice for ALL. Join today and make history. RISE UP. RUN. BE HEARD.

Can’t join us on July 1st? Then support the cause by registering for the RISE UP 5K - NATIONAL VIRTUAL RUN. Click here to learn more.

HOW THIS WORKS:

The Rise Up 5K is a national event located in over 300 U.S. cities, including this one in Washington, DC.   The Rise Up 5K - Washington, DC CURRENTLY HAS 46 REGISTRANTS!  If the Washington event has more than 100 registrants by June 1st, we will assign a local event coordinator who will secure a course, coordinate the volunteers, and manage packet pick up and race day.  Registrants and volunteers will receive an email in early June which will contain the Washington event coordinator’s contact information, the Rise Up 5K - Washington, DC location, and details regarding when and where packets containing a commemorative bib and race shirt may be picked up.

If the Washington event does not reach 100 registrants by June 1st, registrants will be notified by email that the Rise Up 5K - Washington, DC will be a Virtual Run and your race packet will be mailed to you prior to race day.  On July 1st, you can participate by running anywhere!  Options include coordinating a group run with other local registrants on the Rise Up 5K - Washington, DC Facebook Page or traveling to another Rise Up 5K location near you.

If you would like to become the Washington event coordinator or assist with event coordination, please register to volunteer, indicate your prior event/race directing experience, and we will contact you.
