YWCA Minneapolis Race Against Racism

Race Against Racism 5K is an accessible run/walk on a flat course around Lake Nokomis. Gather your friends, families and colleagues for a casual (or competitive) 3.1-mile run or walk in a safe, distanced outdoor setting. Open to all ages and genders. Strollers are welcome! This run/walk supports YWCA's mission and work to eliminate racism and empower women. After a year of virtual events, we are excited for our community of athletes, supporters and social justice advocates to come together in person and celebrate the strength and resilience in us all. Racism is a public health crisis. The CDC states that racism, both structural and interpersonal, has a direct, negative effect on the mental and physical health of millions of people in America. We choose to Race Against Racism to raise awareness of these health disparities. Join us in our efforts to call attention to this important public health issue and advance our racial justice work. Cost = $40 in-person, $30 virtual, free for kids 10 and under.
