Challenging Racism 


Running Against Racism 5K 2020, VIRTUAL! 

A Benefit for Challenging Racism

We're trying something new due to physical distancing guidelines....we'll be virtual this year! It's a thing!

Join us as we support one another and our vision for an anti-racist society.

The COVID-19 crisis shines a light on the glaring inequities rooted in racism in our nation. Communities of color include the most vulnerable to COVID-19 infection due to socioeconomic factors and prevalence of pre-existing health conditions associated with worse outcomes. Our commitment to the work of educating people about the prevalence and inequities of institutional and systemic racism is only strengthened by what we see in the early days of this crisis.

You pick your location, and even your date! 

Track your mileage (5K = 3.1 miles), and upload a picture of yourself, your family or a friend, as physical distancing guidelines allow, to Challenging Racism's Facebook Event and/or Instagram when you complete your run/walk by or on May 16th.  

Donate what you can. For individuals who donate $40, you will receive a Running Against Racism t-shirt (while supplies last) that you can wear for your run and your race photo (T-shirt to be picked up in Arlington).

If you cannot make it but would like to make a donation, click here to donate through Paypal or visit our website at www.challengingracism.org/donate.

Finally, if you know of an employer/business which would consider sponsoring our event, please be in touch at 5k@challengingracism.org

Thank you for supporting Challenging Racism during this mission-critical time. 

Help us to continue challenging racism and help us build a running against racism tradition.
