Event Description

Join us for the 4th Annual Race to Equality 5K, 10K, Half Marathon & 135 Mile Challenge to bring awareness to racial inequality while raising funds to support scholarships to the African American community.

Following WWII, America’s cold war with Russia heated up and the Space Race began. Behind the scenes were many women of color. These “Hidden Figures” made famous by the book and subsequent movie, paved the way for many first achievements for Women in Science, especially women of color. Join us as we explore the lives of Mary Jackson, Katherine Johnson, Dorothy Vaughn, and Christine Darden, pioneers at NASA and in their fields, and their inspiration for many generations of young women.

Last year we added the Hidden Figures 135 Mile Challenge to represent 1 mile for each year these women worked for NASA. These women were fearless in their pursuit of a better life, recognition within the science community, and equality for women in the workplace. Run, Bike, or walk 135 miles during the month of February to honor their dedication and sacrifice.

Each runner or walker will receive an official Race to Equality finishers’ technical shirt, a 4’ medal, a BUFF, and a SWAG Bag.
