What is the RAH?™

We’re glad you asked.

RAH! represents the celebration of an annual event with hundreds of runners and thousands of fans in the beautiful, historic neighborhood of Ardmore in Winston-Salem.

RAH! stands for Run Against Hunger because it’s a food drive with all net proceeds benefiting the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC, which assists food insecure and at-risk families and children right in our own neighborhoods.

RAH! is the sound of an entire community coming together to do something really worth cheering for. The race occurs the third Saturday in October, annually. 

The 2023 RAH! features a fun run (1 mile), a 5K, and a 10K. This race is designed for everyone, from lightening-fast runners and avid athletes to power walkers and first-time participants. You can complete this in person or virtually!

• All runners, walkers and wheelchair racers are welcome.

• Strollers are permitted.

• Pets are not allowed on the race course.

• Start times: The 10K will begin at 8:00AM. The Fun Run starts at 8:10AM. The 5K will begin at 9:15AM. Awards ceremony will follow the 5K. 

Please consider parking at Ardmore Baptist Church or Ardmore United Methodist Church. Both are located about 0.5 miles (~9 min) walk from Redeemer. 

The Ardmore RAH 5K and 10K races are sanctioned by USA Track & Field.

Members of Redeemer Church and the Ardmore Neighborhood Association founded the Ardmore 5K in 2001. Our goal was to strengthen the community by uniting for a meaningful cause: fighting hunger. More than $286,000 has been donated to Second Harvest Food Bank — $26,000 last year alone – which has provided more than 2 MILLION meals to our neighbors. In 2013, the addition of a 10K led us to rename the Ardmore 5K to the Run Against Hunger – the RAH! The expanded event has drawn more participants, generated more excitement and raised more money and awareness of the fight against hunger.
