2019 Human Race

May 4th, 2019

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, and has managed the race since 1994!

Would you like to become a sponsor of The Human Race and help us put on the best community wide fundraising event in the Triad? Email erin@volunteergso.org.

The Human Race is a unique way for our community to come together:

  • About 100 different nonprofits form teams and recruit members to fund raise for their missions
  • Dozens of companies form teams and their employees can choose the cause they are most passionate about
  • Anywhere from 3,000-5,000 people come together on race day to celebrate. You will see people of all ages, kids in strollers, folks who use wheelchairs and leashed, friendly dogs.

The Human Race is RAIN OR SHINE! Join us for a walk, run, or roll around the neighborhood, and then enjoy our famous AFTERPARTY in the Swarm Field House including complementary food from Fishers’ Grille, Zoe’s Kitchen,  music and fun for the whole family!

The 5k is no longer a timed race. If you’d like to run, it’s free this year. You can line up in front of the walkers, but we will not have a race timer or prizes for top finishers. There is not a separate registration for “fun runners”.

Parking is FREE in the main Coliseum lot!

Leashed, friendly dogs as well as strollers and wheelchairs are welcome at the event.
