Holly's Hope 5K Run/1 Mile Walk

  • Harford County Equestrian Center 608 North Tollgate Road Bel Air, MD (map)

Online Registration is now closed. Registration will be available at the Packet Pick-up Session as well as on-site on race day morning.


Holly's Hope 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk was organized in 2014 by Bel Air resident Ethan Brito as a way to honor his Aunt Holly who is a survivor of abuse. Ethan wanted to make the community and other area victims of abuse aware of the services provided by SARC so they would be able to turn to their local resource to help them escape their abusive situations. Ethan hoped to bring more community awareness to SARC, and over the past 4 years, he has done just that. SARC is thrilled to be hosting the 5th Annual Holly's Hope 5k Run/1 Mile walk to benefit all of SARC's services that are provided to the community free of charge. You can visit for more information.

The Holly's Hope 5K Run/1 Mile Walk is stroller and dog friendly!
