Run for Recovery is using PayPal to accept payment for race registration without the hassle of collecting cash or checks. The registration fee covers the cost of your t-shirt and medal. Payments in excess of cost will be allocated to the Alba Safe House and Recovery Program.

  • Create an Account or Log into Existing Account

    • In order to use PayPal you must either already have a PayPal account or create one.  Creating one is quick and easy.  You can do this at paypal.com or using the PayPal mobile app. If you already have a PayPal account, just log in to your account.

  • Once you have logged into your PayPal account you can send a payment to us using our PayPal-registered email address, Albarunforrecovery@gmail.com

    • Important! Please ensure that you select the friends and family option before making the payment as otherwise the Run for Recovery club will be charged for the payment.

    • The easiest way to pay is with a debit card, but you can also link your bank account directly to PayPal if you use it a lot.

  • Once you have completed the payment process, enter a description of what the payment is for.  This will help us keep track of our registered runners.
