Race for Hope - Richmond, IN Description
The 2023 inaugural Belden Race for Hope 5K will benefit the restoration of Refuge of Hope Women's Shelter in Richmond, Indiana. Refuge of Hope provides a safe haven for women with or without children who are struggling in the Richmond community.
Over the last two years, they have helped more than 120 women and 10 children get back on their feet. Fortunately, they were able to go through a renovation to create a shared living space with new beds, a bathroom, and kitchen. However, they have expressed a need for a new roof, as well as some renovations to the upstairs of the building. This space will be used for their long-term program with a goal to provide housing for women advancing through the shelter’s Next Steps initiative. This initiative will allow these women to work towards secure housing, employment opportunities, as well as education and provisions.
The target goal for the roof is $10,000, with the hopes we can raise more to support the Next Steps initiative. Please visit the Refuge of Hope website to learn more about this organization.

New to running? DOWNLOAD our ZERO to 5K program - Many newcomers to running become discouraged by the difficulty associated with the activity because they start too fast and push too hard. Their bodies rebel and they wind up miserable, wondering why anyone would possibly want to run in the first place. The Zero to 5K program has been specifically designed to instill a love of running and ends with participating in your first timed 5K.
We’re here to help you achieve your goal(s), be it your first 5K, improving your run, or simply offering a resource where you can run with a group that is designed to help each other stay motivated. You should ease into your 5K training plan gradually. In fact, the program we provide is less of a running regimen than a walking and jogging program. The idea is to transform you from a non-runner, getting you to begin running a 5K ( or 3.1 miles) and on a regular basis in just 4 weeks.
It’s easy to get impatient, and you may feel tempted to skip ahead in the program, but hold yourself back. Don’t try to do more, even if you feel you can. If, on the other hand, you find the program too strenuous, just stretch it out. Don’t feel pressured to continue faster than you’re able. Repeat weeks if needed and move ahead only when you feel you’re ready.
