Journey Home Series- Race 2* “It’s Been a Witch of a Year!”

The second race in the Journey Home series introduces Dorothy to the Wicked Witch. Lack of affordable housing, skilled jobs, and opportunities for social mobility, are all characterized by the witch, and highlight the obstacles 40% of our community faces as they strive to reach a stronger future. Together we can defeat the wicked witch!

Whether you’re a world-class runner or just out for an evening stroll, participate in our family fun 5K and enjoy the evening. You can choose to run in-person or virtually and collect the second of five commemorative medals in our “Journey Home” race series as well as a chance to win a beautiful black and white diamond pendant valued at $3,000, from our partners at Wesche Jewelers!

Our concern for the welfare of the participants will continue to be our first priority. For our February 26, 2021 race, we are offering an in-person and virtual event and runners and walkers will have the ability to switch between race options until Thursday, February 25, 2021.  Running Zone will manage the race, and we will follow their guidance and recommendations regarding in-person race safety.

Our races will feature a “rolling” start, rather than a mass start. Our water station will feature sealed bottles of water.  People are invited to will walk through the Emerald City and pick-up packaged foods and sealed drinks.  There will be a virtual awards ceremony and awards can be picked up afterward at Running Zone.
