Organiser's Description

Be part of the YWCA Lancaster's 2023 Race Against Racism!

 A Quarter Century of Racing Against Racism
For 25 years, tens of thousands of Lancaster County residents have gathered as a community to make our voices heard, and join the movement to eliminate racism and empower women with YWCA Lancaster. We hope you'll join us and 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 in Lancaster County and beyond, but together we can build a just future.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.
About the 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
Runs ranging from 100 meter - 1/3 miles for children through age 12, which will kick off our race festivities at 8:30 a.m. Registration is required. All children receive a race T-shirt!

 
Participate as a Team
Participating in the Race Against Racism as a team is a great way to connect with your family, friends, community, or colleagues and build camaraderie while collectively taking a stand against racism. Register yourself, form your team, and then start inviting people to join you! Supercharge your support of YWCA Lancaster's Center for Racial and Gender Equity by becoming a Team Fundraiser and challenging your team to raise additional funds!
 Awards are given to the largest teams in these categories: Place of Worship, Large Business, Small Business, School Team and Largest Overall Team.
