Mark your calendars! The YWCA Greater Harrisburg's 14th Annual Race Against Racism is being held Saturday, April 28, 2018, rain or shine.  The race supports the YWCA's mission to eliminate racism, empower women and girls, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.  The funds we raise are crucial to sustaining our racial justice programs throughout the year ahead. 

The 5K run/walk kicks off at 8:30 a.m. and starts and ends at Solider's Grove.  Day-of registration and packet pick-up open at 7:30 a.m. See below for pre-race registration!

This is the second year we will be following the route through downtown and midtown. The Annual Kid's Fun Run will take place at 10:00 a.m. during the Humanity Fest.  This is a FREE dash for kids through age 12.   There will be food trucks and vendors, live music, dancers and performances all following the race.

Take advantage of Early Bird Registration now through March 31st!

  • $35 – Adult Registration  Race Day, April 28, 2018

Registration includes a t-shirt and a reusable Race Against Racism water bottle, while supplies last.  Registration must be completed by April 13 to guarantee a t-shirt and registration packet pickup.

Packet Pickup will be held at the Broad Street Market on Friday April 20th from 4pm-7pm during Third in the Burg and on Saturday April 21st from 8am-10am.


How about registering as a team?  Participating as a team is a great way to promote health and fitness… and introduce a little bit of competition among your employees, friends, and family. Team registration must be created by April 13. No exceptions! Team captains must first set up their teams online before members can join.

Our registration page is different than last year so you will be asked to register as an individual first before creating a team or joining a team.  Look for: Do you want to join or create a team? "
