Courage to Run is the nation's premier, nonpartisan 5K run/walk and party celebrating women getting civically active and running for office. We are also elevating being healthy to lead effectively in civic life today. The Courage to Run is on Saturday, April 13 in Washington, DC and communities across the country. The Washington, DC race is a USATF-certified, time-chipped race at the Historic Congressional Cemetery and along the Anacostia River in Capitol Hill. The day's festivities kick off at 9 AM with a Kids Dash for Democracy (8 and under), followed by the 5K.
