About This Activity

At a time when hate is loud, love cannot be silent.  Sign up to celebrate peace and diversity on the International Day of Peace.

This event is for everyone!  Participants may register for a timed 5K running race or a 5K fun walk.  In addition to the 5K run/walk, there will be educational presentations, community resources and more.  We will invite speakers, community leaders, law enforcement, and YOU to be a part of this premier event!

 

The Choose Peace 5k - Roanoke will begin and end in Wasena Park in Roanoke Virginia.  The course winds through Wasena Park, Vic Thomas Park, Memorial Bridge Park and beyond, looping back to Wasena with bridge crossing and beautiful river views along the way. Walkers and runners will enjoy this peaceful setting close to Downtown Roanoke and the Roanoke River.

The Choose Peace 5k supports the Races for Peace organization. Our Goals include:

  1. Strengthen and unify communities through race events across the country.
  2. Increase awareness of the benefits of choosing peace and the value of diversity.
  3. Provide strategies for promoting peace through self-awareness, effective communication skills, positive life choices, and conflict resolution.
  4. Build bridges between local law enforcement and communities to increase partnership, cooperation, and mutual respect.
  5. Raise funds for Races for Peace programs, local charities engaged in promoting peace in accordance with the Races for Peace mission, and organizational operations.

 

 

Event is Rain or Shine. No refunds if cancelled due to severe weather.

 

***A portion of the proceeds will go to a Non-Profit that supports our mission**
