Women In Government is excited to partner with the Courage to Run 5K, the nation's first nonpartisan run and walk that celebrates the rising wave of women getting civically active and running for office. It also elevates the mindset, endurance and heartfelt vision needed to be healthy and lead effectively in civic life today. The day's festivities kick off at 9 AM with a Kids Dash for Democracy (8 and under), followed by the 5K. Runners return to a big finish-line party, civic fair, live music, speakers, prizes, medals, and delicious eats and treats.
Join the Women In Government team and run or walk at the flagship event in Washington, DC or participate with our Virtual Courage to Run 5K in your local community. Virtual runs allow you to participate in the Courage to Run from anywhere and at any time. You can run, jog, hop, skip or jump on the road, on the trail or canvassing door-to-door. We send you all you need - bib, t-shirt, and medal. You post your experience on social on April 13!
