Race Against Racism

The longest consecutive running race against racism in the USA!

 

April 30, 9 AM

Saint James Harriers*

A message from our team captain Bruce Nickles: Once again, I’m back as Captain of the Saint James Harriers.  My car broke down near Johnstown, PA; my hot water heater busted and leaked water in finished basement, and I retired, so I’m a bit late getting started.  BUT, GET READY TO RUMBLE! (or run, walk, crawl or shuffle like me.)   After two years of virtual running, the 2022 Race against Race is back to an in person race!  And it’s time to join our team.  It’s easy peasy.

Register for race (link is below) and then at the bottom of the registration check the box asking if you want to join a team – our team name is the Saint James Harriers. Any questions just email me or text me at 610-698-0407.  Feel free to forward this email to others who may be interested.  Thanks.

2019 Saint James Harriers

Each year, Saint James participates in the annual Race Against Racism to help support the YWCA’s social justice and advocacy programs. The YWCA is the oldest and largest multi-racial women’s organization in the world. Since its inception in 1855, it has been at the forefront of working for justice, equity and peace through the elimination of racism.

*In the 1830s, English schoolboys developed a game called Hares and Hounds: “Hounds” would chase “hares,” who would leave paper trails through woods and hills for the hounds to follow. A group of Londoners took up the game in 1867 as a way to stay in shape and adopted the name Harriers.
