Race Types

TEAM CHALLENGE

Sign up 5+ participants to raise funds together and compete in the 5k as a team! To form a team, select the Team Challenge option when you register. You do not have to stay together, you can all run and walk at your own pace, and the times of your first 5 finishers will count for your score.  All the funds raised by your team members will be combined for a team total—track your progress on your Team Page, and check the leaderboard on our website to see if your team is in the lead!

**Team members will still be placed as individuals and can win individually and with team members. All teams MUST be registered online before the close of online registration. Team members cannot be added on race day. However, you can still register to run as an individual on race day at the event.

 

RUNNING DUO

Have fun participating in the Race Against Poverty as a co-ed pair!

Whether a father/daughter, a mother/son or maybe a fun running or walking partner, enjoy the time together as you join in the fun for this category.

Sign up for either the walk or the run as a Running Duo, and then find your sponsors to make a greater impact! You can track your progress on your RAP5k Page.

**Running Duos will still be placed as individuals and can win individually and as a pair. All Running Duos MUST be registered online before the close of online registration. However, you can still register to run as an individual on race day at the event.

 

INDIVIDUAL

Of course, you can participate in the 5k as an individual. Just sign up for either the walk or the run and find your sponsors to make a greater impact! You can track your progress on your very own RAP5k Page.

**Those who sign up with a Team or Running Duo will be timed and can place as an individual in addition to their Team or Running Duo.

Raber Runs for Kids

There are 2 options for the Kids Runs (age 11 and under). The Kids Dash is a 1/2 mile and costs no money, whereas the Kids 1 Miler has a $10 fee because it includes a t-shirt.
