Race United

Race United
Formerly the Race Against Poverty
Saturday, September 23, 2023

After three successful years organized by the Jefferson Leadership Institute Class of 2017, the highly anticipated event will return under a new name, with input from JLI alumni on the planning committee.

Race United is an exciting opportunity to support local initiatives and make a positive impact on the lives of our neighbors. Participants will join in the race – a scavenger hunt type of event – where runners, walkers, and individuals of all fitness levels are encouraged to take part, with a prize going to the team who completes the course the quickest.

Following the completion of the race, with various stops at local businesses, all participants are invited to join in an after-party located at 210 Court St. in Watertown. This celebratory gathering will provide an opportunity for participants to connect, share their experiences, and enjoy a day filled with camaraderie, community spirit, entertainment and refreshments.

Tickets are $60 per team of two and may be purchased online at or by phoning the United Way office at 315-788-5631.
