Dog Policy: As much as we love our furry friends, dogs are not allowed on the race course.

Questions on this process? Contact info@arunaproject.com.


Are walkers welcome?

Of course! Whether walking or running, we are all out there for the same goal -- to raise funds to help bring freedom to the sexually enslaved.

Are dogs welcome?

We love our four-legged, furry friends, but for safety reasons, they are not permitted at the race.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Nope! As long you can cover the distance, we welcome all ages to participate. Parents are welcome to push kids in strollers too.

Can I update my registration information?

We all make mistakes and things change. So yes, you can update your registration information.

Is my registration fee transferrable?

Unfortunately, no. But if you cannot join us for the race, we will still make every effort to ensure you get your race giveaway items. Contact Carly at portlandaruna5k@gmail.com to make arrangements to pick them up.

And the good news is 100% of your registration fee goes directly towards the cause of freeing, empowering, and employing enslaved women. So even if you can't join us, your money will still make an impact.

Is it okay if the name on my registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Unfortunately, no. We need all registrations to match the person who attends the race for timing and legal purposes.
