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.
