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 Lancaster has made the decision to transition the Race Against Racism to a Virtual Race.
How does a Virtual 5K Run/Walk Work? We encourage you to run or walk a 5K (3.1 miles) between 12:00AM on March 25 and 11:59PM on April 25. This can be done wherever you are – on a treadmill; on a rails to trails path; around a track at a school; or even the race course – it’s your choice! Then connect your experience and offer encouragement to other participants by posting on the Race Against Racism Facebook or Instagram page utilizing the hashtag #RARLancaster #VirtualRace. Different Locations. Shared Experience. A Community United.
This is an exciting solution! Current 5K registered participants will automatically be enrolled in the Virtual Race. This unique opportunity allows you to not only run/walk yourself but encourage friends and family from across the world to join you in this stand against racism. The Kids Fun Run – 100 Yard Dash for kids 12 and under will also be held virtually. It's not too late to late to register!
Additionally, YWCA Lancaster is planning to schedule a Race Against Racism Finish Line Celebration where you can pick up your one-of-a-kind Race t-shirt and water bottle for 5K participants, or a bandana and ribbon for all Kids Fun Run participants. It will be a gathering for the record books showing how our Community came together for a common cause even in the midst of the global pandemic! The exact date of the Celebration is yet to be determined.
We believe our mission must go on! We are grateful to you for participating in this virtual race! We couldn’t do it without you! We look forward to celebrating with you after we journey together through these uncertain times.
