Run or walk the HOPE Lope 5k 2021, our second annual fundraiser benefiting the horses of H.O.P.E. Acres Rescue! This one's completely virtual folks, so you can participate anywhere and at any pace you choose. Whether you walk around your neighborhood, run through the park, or jog on a treadmill, it’s up to you. If you're an astronaut, you can even run in space.
How it works:
1. Complete the virtual race any time between March 6 and March 15.
2. Have fun, enjoy your swag bag, take a selfie with your HOPE Lope shirt, and share your race experience with us on social media using the hashtags #hopelope5k and #hopeacresrescue. You can also submit your race photos through the "Photos" tab at the top of this page.
3. Submit your results by 12:00 pm March 15 using the "Results" tab at the top of this page, or through your RunSignup profile. This is a fun run, so you're racing for bragging rights (and for the horses. Although if you run the fastest 5k dressed as a horse that might get you a Guiness World Record. We'd like to see that).
Registration includes a HOPE Lope 5k shirt and race bag. We’re kicking off the race March 6 with a socially distant event on the patio at Bohemian Bull on James Island. If you’re in the area, enjoy music by The Bryan Robert's Band and great food when you come by to pick up your race bag! If you're not local or just prefer to have your bag sent to your home, we can mail it to you with a shipping fee (this helps us keep our costs down and ensures that more proceeds go to the horses). When you register, please indicate if you would like your race bag shipped to you by selecting the Shipping Fee.

We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit in Berkeley County, SC that rescues, rehabilitates, and provides sanctuary for neglected and abused horses from across the state. We believe that all horses deserve peaceful lives free from fear and neglect. By participating, you help us feed and provide life-saving veterinary treatments to horses that are sick, starving, and in need of a good home. Thank you for joining us as we give these beautiful animals a second chance at a happy life!
