Description

What is the RAH?™

We’re glad you asked.

RAH! represents the celebration of an annual event with hundreds of runners and thousands of fans in the beautiful, historic neighborhood of Ardmore in Winston-Salem.

RAH! stands for Run Against Hunger because it’s a food drive with all net proceeds benefiting the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC, which assists food insecure and at-risk families and children right in our own neighborhoods.

RAH! is the sound of an entire community coming together to do something really worth cheering for.

The 2021 RAH! features a fun run (1 mile), a 5K, and a 10K. This race is designed for everyone, from lightening-fast runners and avid athletes to power walkers and first-time participants. You can complete this in person or virtually!

• All runners, walkers and wheelchair racers are welcome.

• Strollers are permitted.

• Pets are not allowed on the race course.

The Ardmore RAH 5K and 10K races are sanctioned by USA Track & Field.

History

Members of Redeemer Church and the Ardmore Neighborhood Association founded the Ardmore 5K in 2001. Our goal was to strengthen the community by uniting for a meaningful cause: fighting hunger. More than $234,000 has been donated to Second Harvest Food Bank — $25,000 last year alone – which has provided more than 1.5 MILLION meals to our neighbors. In 2013, the addition of a 10K led us to rename the Ardmore 5K to the Run Against Hunger – the RAH! The expanded event has drawn more participants, generated more excitement and raised more money and awareness of the fight against hunger.
