Kids age 11 and under can participate for free, and there will also be Toddler Trots at 9:30am and 12:00pm. *Please note, strollers are allowed in the building and near the other tables/activities.

Mission Behind Race Against Racism

Much like training for an athletic event, eliminating racism requires commitment, a plan, consistent hard work, and a willingness to push past potentially limiting beliefs.  Consider how our different identities, experiences and bodies inhabit different lanes in both the work of eliminating racism, and the work of running.  Sharing a track together on Saturday 3/23 allows us to visualize these lanes, and our shared work.  

The CDC states that racism, both structural and interpersonal, has a direct, negative effect on the mental and physical health of millions of people in America. Race against Racism is an opportunity for us to come together in the spirit of health and solidarity to raise awareness of this crisis, and take action together while supporting YWCA’s Racial Justice programs.  

Day of Race Activities

YWCA Race Against Racism will have many fun activities race day such as:

Awards and Giveaways
