Race For Steak
RACE FOR STEAK
The Angus Barn • Raleigh, NC
Sunday, October 14, 2018
Accompanying our annual Walk for Hope, the Race for Steak is a USA Track & Field Certified run held in Raleigh, North Carolina with timed 5k and 10k routes. 100% of the money raised by participants directly funds local mental health research at the UNC-Chapel Hill Department of Psychiatry. And, just as critically, it helps call attention to the stigma and significance of these often invisible illnesses, which affect as many as one in five American adults.
The Race for Steak features two different routes:
- 10k (6.2 miles) begins at the Angus Barn on Hwy 70, loops through the Umstead State Park and returns to the Angus Barn.
- 5k (3.1 miles) begins at the Angus Barn on Hwy 70, turns around at the Umstead Visitor Center and returns to the Angus Barn.

The Race for Steak takes place the same day as the Walk for Hope. It is more than just a community event—it’s a huge fundraiser that directly funds the research and treatment of mental illness. Most of our walkers and runners raise the money they need to participate; in fact, the average participant in the race raises at least $150.
