The 2020 Tulsa Rosary Rally & 5K Run will be held at The Gardens at LaFortune Park
Saturday, October 17, 2020 from 8:00 – 11:00 AM


What is the Rosary Rally & 5K Run?

This is an event designed for anyone, young or old in any physical condition. We will gather in the morning to pray the Joyful Mysteries followed by an outdoor mass.  Those that want a morning run are invited to pray on our Rosary-styled 5k course. For the more leisure-loving crowd, we’ll pray during a rosary walk.  Still others are invited to just stay at the rally point and pray as the others complete their courses.  We’ll conclude with the always-popular Rosary Relay where you teams of 4 will compete for a coveted prize from FC Zieglers!

What’s Different This Year?

It goes without saying that 2020 poses some obvious challenges to gatherings.  So to better ensure safety and social distancing for those that wish to do so, there will be some changes from prior Rosary Rallies.  First we are hosting the event, including mass, at The Gardens at LaFortune Park on 51st and Hudson in Tulsa.  This will give us plenty of beautiful space to social distance as needed.  Second, we will have special procedures in place to minimize the risk of COVID-19 exposure. Finally, we are going to incorporate a full virtual component so those that feel uncomfortable with a physical gathering can still participate. Keep reading to learn more.

5K Rosary Run

The 5k Rosary Run is a family fun run with a twist, where each kilometer is set up as a decade in a giant rosary. It’s where the prayer meets the pavement!

The Rosary Run and Rally kicks off on Saturday, October 17 at 8:00 am with the 5K Rosary Run.  As you run the course, you can follow along with markers that prompt you in saying a rosary as you run.  Small balloons at each 1/10th of a kilometer signify ‘Hail Mary’ prayers while larger signs at each kilometer mark the Luminous Mysteries. Rosary Run participants will also receive a special Rosary Rally mask to properly commemorate the 2020 event!

Rosary Relay

Gather a team of 4 friends or family members to compete in this fun relay race

This is the final event of the Rosary Run and Rally. Any paying participant may join a 4 person team.  Teams will race each other around a short course, handing off a rosary to one another until all members have run. The first team with all 4 members across the finish line wins!

Mile For Mary Walk

This one mile walk  is  a less strenuous and more prayer-centered activity than the 5k run.

Participants will all walk together as a group, led by a prayer leader in reciting the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary. Prayer sheets and rosaries are given to every participant. Rosary Walk participants will also receive a special Rosary Rally mask to properly commemorate the 2020 event!

Rosary Prayer Rally

As the walkers and runners are completing their courses, we will stand at the finish line reciting the Glorious Mysteries of the rosary led by a volunteer. 

Anyone is invited to participate in this team at no cost.  Rosaries and prayer sheets will be available to all participants. Tee shirts will be available for a small fee.

Virtual Rally

A full virtual program including livestreaming and recorded content will be shown on this website so anyone can join the rally from home!

Viewers from home will be able to join mass, learn about the rosary, participate in all four mysteries, see the runners finishing, and more!  We’d love to have everyone live at the event, but for those who just aren’t comfortable with large gatherings, this virtual rally is a great option!

COVID 19 Protection Procedures

While we firmly believe that we are in God’s hands and that He uses all for the ultimate good, prudence is a virtue for a reason.  We will, therefore, be following these guidelines to help ensure the health and safety of all our participants:

  • Masks are highly encouraged for all participants, and during all activities at the rally aside from the 5k run
  • Our volunteers will wear masks at all times, as well as gloves when appropriate.
  • We will make sure our venue will have plenty of room for social distancing
  • Food and water at our rally and 5k run will be individually packaged.
  • We will have a procedure for picking up your tee shirts and/or run packets without needing to come in contact with our volunteers
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided at check-in and any food stations.
  • Finally, we will be presenting a completely virtual option for this rally for those who are ill or are otherwise not comfortable with gathering in person.
