Description

We are excited to announce the THRID annual Race4Justice. This event was designed by a women-led student group. Inspired by Breonna Taylor, the movement that followed her tragic loss, and the many other injustices we’ve seen and experienced, this race is about uniting our city to move forward.  Proceeds from the event will be donated to local nonprofits doing justice work in the city. Stay tuned for announcements about who the Race4Justice will be supporting this year. This year's events are:

26 Lap Sprint Relay (8am)
5-person teams complete a relay of 26 total laps.  The FASTEST team wins. Your team can divvy up the 26 laps however you all would like. This event is for our fastest and most competitive participants. Each of the 26 laps is dedicated to one year of Breonna Taylor's life. 

26 Lap Walk/Jog/Run/Roll Relay (9:30)
Gather as many people as you can to complete the 26 laps. The BIGGEST team wins. Walk together as team and/or divvy up the laps. This event is about showing your support for justice and getting as many people to raise money for our organizations. Each of the 26 laps is dedicated to one year of Breonna Taylor's life. 

1.3 Individual Run/Walk (9:30)
Join us solo and complete 5 laps (1.3 miles) however you want to run, walk, jog, roll... We're happy you're hear to show your support! Breonna Taylor's life was taken on March 13th.

Run/walk/roll for 26 minutes, 26 miles, 5 blocks, 1.3 miles...swim 26 laps...do 26 minutes on the treadmill...bike for 5 miles....meditate for 26 minutes... or anything you can think of!!

Land Acknowledgement

We believe in acknowledging the people whose land we run on. We are from Kentucky, a land that was home to over twenty Indigenous tribes. Louisville specifically was originally home to the Kaskasai, Osage, Shawnee, and Myaami people. We want to acknowledge the rich history and heritage of the first people here in Kentucky and recognize that Kentucky is still home to many Native Americans. 

We do not view this acknowledgement as restitution for long history of violence, genocide, and forced removal of Indigenous people from this land.

If you are running with us virtually, we ask that you also research and acknowledge the first stewards of the land that your run on.
