Welcome to the Civil Rights Race Series
The Civil Rights Race Series serves as a participatory commemoration of American History. The race serves the following three purposes:
- Economic Development – To provide an economic driver for underserved communities that played a significant role in the American Civil Rights Movement.
- Education – To educate/advocate to multiple communities on the events surrounding several civil rights events. Ensuring through commemoration, an appreciation and value for the importance of these precious events, in the evolution of our world.
- Health & Wellness – Through our events, we plan to provide training programs and printed materials to serve as a beacon of encouragement to multiple communities on the positive outcomes of adopting a healthy lifestyle.
Currently, the Civil Rights Race Series include the Selma to Montgomery Relay, Civil Rights Race Series Memphis 5k and Half Marathon, and the Riding Through the Flames of Freedom race.
