About This Activity

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 RAH! features a 1-mile fun run, an untimed 5K walk/run, a timed 5K, and a 10K. This race is designed for everyone, from lightening-fast runners and avid athletes to power walkers and first-time participants.

• All runners, walkers and wheelchair racers are welcome.
• Strollers are permitted.
• Pets are not allowed on the race course.

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 $234,000 has been donated to Second Harvest Food Bank — $25,000 last year alone – which has provided more than 1.5 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.
