The Human Race is a 5k walk/run that allows participants to raise money for their favorite nonprofit (agency, school PTA, church, etc..). The Volunteer Center takes care of all of the planning, as has managed the race since 1994!
The Human Race is a unique way for our community to come together:
About 100 different nonprofits form teams and recruit members to fundraise for their missions
Dozens of companies form teams and their employees can choose the cause they are most passionate about
About 250 runners (including running clubs and school athletic teams) run the competitive 5K, also a part of the Greensboro Race Series
For more info, look to the menu in the red bar above. Choose the option that best describes you (nonprofit, walkers/donors, or corporate walking team) and click to learn more!
If you would like to sign up for the 5k RUN, go to www.thehumanrace.kintera.org. There is a $25 registration fee to run ($30 the day of the race). You may choose a nonprofit team to join, or you can join the “Run Only” team.
