2019 Race Against Racism
Mark your calendars! The YWCA Greater Harrisburg's 15th Annual Race Against Racism will be held Saturday, April 27, 2019, 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 third 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.

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 12. 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? "
We also need volunteers for our Race! Route Marshalls are in high demand! Click here to sign up today!
