Past Event - Virtual 5k - 16th Annual Race Against Racism

Wed, Apr 01, 2020 (All day) to Sat, Apr 25, 2020 (All day)

 UPDATE: The past few weeks have been full of uncertainty for our community and country. Due to recommendation guidelines from CDC health and government officials and to prioritize the health and safety of everyone involved, the YWCA Greater Harrisburg has made the decision to transition the Race Against Racism to a Virtual Race.

What is a virtual race? A virtual race is not something new and has been successfully executed for numerous walks, 5K and 10K races, as well as half marathons. Our runners will participate in the Race Against Racism Virtual Race by running or walking a distance of 5K or 3.1 miles between 12:00 a.m. on April 1 and 11:59 p.m. on April 25. This can be done wherever they are—on a treadmill, on a rails to trails path, around a track, or even the racecourse! Then, participants will connect their experiences and offer encouragement to others by posting on FacebookInstagram, or Twitter and tagging us and utilizing the hashtags #RARHBG #VirtualRace. In addition, the Kids Fun Run - 100 yard dash for children 12 and under will take place virtually too. 

We believe our mission must go on! We are grateful to you-- our valued partners and sponsors, who make this event possible – even a virtual one. We couldn’t do it without you! Even in these uncertain times, we will continue to fight for our community because we are all equal, powerful, and unstoppable.
