Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update   We have just received notice that, effective immediately, the Foundation for Blind is cancelling Stride for Sight due to health concerns regarding the coronavirus. All registrations will be converted to virtual registrations and your race packets including shirt and finisher's medal will be mailed out on Monday, March 30th.

If you have any questions please reach out to StartLine Racing at


Stride for Sight 5K is a unique event for all ages and abilities, with blind and sighted runners competing together. The event will help fund the comprehensive programs at the Foundation for Blind Children. This event will feature a timed 5k and a relaxed 1-mile walk held in Scottsdale, with a unique twist known as “The Blindfold Challenge” where you can compete blindfolded with a team member of your choosing as a sighted guide.

Blindfold Challenge: For those looking for adventure, the Blindfold Challenge is an opportunity to compete in the 5k run blindfolded with a sighted guide. Running blindfolded takes competition to a whole new level and is sure to be a life changing experience! Create a 2-person team and compete blindfolded using one another as a sighted guide. Run the entire route blindfolded or run it as the sighted guide, or trade roles halfway through to get a taste of the challenges for each position. Each Teammate must register separately. Blindfolds and tethers will be provided.
