The Grace Race is a 5k running race and a 2k family-friendly walk through Williamsville. The race starts at the Village Pointe cul-de-sac and leads you through twists and turns on Essjay Road and International Drive. Runners steadily continue on Sheridan Drive before turning onto Youngs Road to “conquer the climb”… a 0.4 mile uphill challenge. The race finishes with a turn onto Main Street that will take you to the home stretch on Academy Street and through the finish line. Following the race, CCA hosts an awards ceremony with food and entertainment. We are pleased that a portion of each year’s proceeds will help fund future Senior Class Mission Trips. The balance of the funds go directly to Christian Central Academy to support educational programs.

This family and community event in the Buffalo-Niagara Region is open to the public.

The race is a USATF certified and sanctioned course. We invite runners of all ages and skill levels to participate, along with students, families, faculty/staff, and over 75 churches that are represented at CCA. The Grace Race also allows CCA to engage those in its local community in, mind, body and soul with an emphasis on education, fitness, and faith. We look forward each year in June to this exciting event. Come and enjoy the fun! Visit the Grace Race website at
