Be part of the YWCA Lancaster's 2022 Race Against Racism!

Why We Race

Be part of the biggest and longest consecutively run Race Against Racism in the nation! We know we have far to go on our journey to eliminate racism, but can go if we go together.

Join with your community to name the need, unite with your friends, neighbors and coworkers, and create change. A 5K race cannot end racism but naming the need is vital, and every step we take together makes a difference. 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.

All proceeds from the Race Against Racism will support the Center for Racial and Gender Equity (CRGE) and our community programs of education, training, advocacy and change.

There are three ways to race!
  • 5k Race
    • Back in-person at Musser Park, rain or shine! The race you know and love: a certified 5 kilometers/3.1 mile course looping through Lancaster City with timing clocks at the one and two-mile marks.

  • Kids' Fun Run
    • A 100 yard dash for kids through age 12, that kicks off after the 5k race at approximately 10:30 a.m. Registration is required. All children receive a participation ribbon!

  • Self-Guided Historical Race
    • Back by popular demand! Helping local history come alive, the self-guided course will feature a curated Race Against Racism playlist with music and local voices about historic stops along the route to learn and experience Lancaster City’s history in an impactful way.
