Race for the Cure Inside 5K

Races are run on a paved track within the prison yard - nine laps around the track is approximately one mile.  This means a 5K is 28 laps and a 10K consists of 56 laps.

 

Reason to Run partners with Race for the Cure to allow inmates to run the event inside the prison yard with a Race for the Cure numbered bib.  Inmates donate $5 to $10 to participate in the event and those not running/walking cheer on the sidelines.

 

Over the past four years over 300 inmates have participated in Race for the Cure Inside and have raised over $1,500 for breast cancer research.  We are already planning for the 5th annual Race for the Cure Inside.

Stomp Out Abuse 5K/10K

In May 2015, the Reason to Run partnered with Abuse Recover Ministries (ARMs) to coordinate a 5K/10K race.  The race, Stomp Out Abuse, was open to all inmates in the minimum unit of the CCCF and focused on raising awareness about domestic abuse.
 
The event included a guest speaker who share her story of escaping a domestic abuse situation and encouraged inmates to take advantage of the ARMs support groups available at CCCF. The race did not have official results, but all 50+ participants received an official race bib and there was a finish line timing clock.
