YWCA Lancaster RACE AGAINST RACISM: Our History, Our Journey.  


Join us in our 23rd year and longest-running Race Against Racism in the country by racing your way April 24 – May 22, 2021. Run or walk a distance of 5K on our new self-guided historic course or choose your favorite trail, course or treadmill. The choice is yours! Don’t forget to share your photos on social using #RARLancaster!

Why We Race

A 5K race cannot end racism but naming the need to create change and working together can make a difference. All proceeds from the Race Against Racism will support the Center for Racial and Gender Equity (CRGE), who engages in education, training, advocacy, and change.  We will keep running until injustice is rooted out; institutions are transformed, and the world sees women, girls and people of color the way we do:  Equal, Powerful, Unstoppable

Race Your Way

This year you can participate in a self-guided 5K run/walk in Lancaster City with a curated Race Against Racism playlist featuring music and spoken word about historic stops along the route to learn and experience Lancaster City’s history in an impactful way. 

Kids 12 and under can participate in a 100 yard dash virtually and earn a bandana, ribbon, and “Roots Run Deep” book by award-winning author, Zetta Elliott with illustrations by Darice Pollard and Gracie Berry.
