Nun Run/Walk 5K

Since 2015, the Sisters of Saint Dominic have hosted the Nun Run/Walk 5K fundraising event each year during the springtime. This popular 5K event starts and finishes at the Motherhouse and features a course set throughout Blauvelt. Supporting the Nun Run/Walk 5K allows the Sisters of Saint Dominic to continue furthering our mission to serve the poor and marginalized, as well as bringing compassion and mercy to those who need us most.

The 2021 Nun Run/Walk 5K is now virtual!


Please join the Sisters of Saint Dominic of Blauvelt, New York at the 2021 Virtual Nun Run/Walk 5K race starting on Saturday, May 15, 2021.

What does it mean for the 2021 Nun Run/Walk 5K to be virtual?

Well, online registration is the same as always, but instead of gathering together on Saturday, May 15th in Blauvelt, you run or walk at your choice of time and at your choice of place. Whether you are running in your backyard, park, neighborhood, or a treadmill, just make sure to log your distance and time, and it'll count!

Register online anytime until May 5, 2021, and after you register, you will be sent a link to submit your time and photos, along with information on how to pick up your official Nun Run/Walk 5K shirt. Then, complete your run anytime between 12:00 AM of May 8, 2021 and 12:00 pm on May 15, 2021.

Unfortunately, due to present conditions, we will not be awarding trophies or medals for this year’s race.


To register for the Nun Run/Walk, visit our race page.

If you'd like to become a race sponsor, contact Race Director, Katie Mahon by calling 845-359-7327 or e-mailing
