Get in the habit! It’s Nun Run time again at Barry!  

Attention runners, walkers, and even strollers! It’s that time again to register for our renowned Nun Run, with 5k and 8k certified runs to raise scholarship funds for the students at Barry University. 

Recruit your best walkers/runners/joggers and register as a Team!

Bring your family and choose the length that works best for you! And if you wear a habit, you’ll be honoring the determined spirit of Barry University’s founders, the Adrian Dominican Sisters. 

Results and standings will be monitored with real-time chip tracking technology from Split Second Timing. 

Our post-race Cool-Down Event and Awards Presentation will have food, drinks, booths, and entertainment for everyone. 

And, all Nun Run participants will receive an Official Nun Run t-shirt!

Not able to join us at the run, no problem ! You can support our students by making a donation towards Barry University Scholarships. Make sure to click on 'Donate' on the top left of the page.



Support Barry Students


Every year more than half of Barry students report a deficit between $2,500 and $5,000 in covering their expenses. These might seem like small amounts, but for students who come from homes where family income is less than $50,000, any amount can make the difference between staying at Barry and having to drop out. Your participation in the Nun Run will not only be fun, but it will also help our students continue to move forward with their academic and purposeful pursuits.
