The League of Women Runners is coming in hot...

Race for Equality

Race for Equality


We believe in a world in which we can all run free. We aren’t there yet. Racism, misogyny, discrimination and poverty make it so that only some of us can safely run down the street.

To raise awareness, we put a unique spin on the typical running race shirt. The front simply reads 'Race for Equality." But instead of a back full of sponsor logos, we instead share important information around social and racial justice. Things like, “Running while Black is not a crime” and “84% of women have been harassed while running” and "We run on Native Land" start to paint the picture that in running and life - we most definitely have work to do. Join us.
