The Race Against Racism (RAR) got its start in 2011 with one goal; to provide a positive environment for people of all backgrounds to gather and promote an active, healthy lifestyle while encouraging positive police-community relations. Runners, walkers, and rollers have the choice to participate in the 2.5km or 5km. The cost is $10 for adults, children and youth are FREE.
The Race includes an expo beyond the finish line called “Around the World – A Cultural Expo.” It showcases ethnic displays from local groups to promote community engagement and to celebrate diversity.
The Annual Race Against Racism brings together individuals from all over Saskatoon from various communities, with unique backgrounds, religions, cultures, sexual orientations, ages, and ethnicities. Everyone comes together to achieve a common goal; to provide a positive, safe environment to live in harmony and show that Saskatoon will not accept racism.
