Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate

The Ricky Byrdsong Memorial Race Against Hate brings together thousands of people from all over Chicagoland to run and walk in unity against racial hatred and violence. The Race features music, on-field refreshments, and fun for the whole family.  The Race Against Hate honors the legacy of Ricky Byrdsong, former Northwestern University Men's Basketball Coach who, while walking with his two young children in 1999, was murdered by a white supremacist.

Proceeds from the Race Against Hate are used to further the mission of YWCA Evanston/North Shore. Early bird registration pricing is available to those who register before April 5.  For more information about the race and to register online, please visit
