Race Information

The Fast & the Fierce 5K, sponsored by Aegis Project Controls takes place at Freedom Plaza and is raising funds to save the rhinos. 

All runners have the opportunity to fundraise, which supports Smithsonian scientists working to collect gut microbe samples from wild black rhinos in South Africa. With so few rhinos left in the world, the survival of each is critically important.
