Top (3) finishers for each group will be awarded a trophy. Additionally, we will have endless choices of pie inside of our Lobby for you to choose from and enjoy after the race!
It is preferred that participants pre-register online. Same day registrations will be available, if needed, and will begin at 7:30am at our front desk. The race will begin at 8:30am with runners at the front of the group and walkers at the back.
Proceeds from the race will go towards the YMCA Annual Campaign. The Annual Campaign provides scholarships and assistance for individuals and families in our community to access YMCA programs for a healthy lifestyle including senior programming, community health, youth camps, swim lessons, and much more!
