YMCA Mistletoe Run

Run. Walk. Stop Childhood Obesity.

The 2014 results are in! Click here to see them and save the date for next year: Saturday, December 5, 2015.

The Mistletoe Half Marathon, 5K, and Fun Run date is coming this December. Join us Saturday, December 6 for the 31st Annual Event.

The Mistletoe Run is a great way to start the holiday season! Our Mistletoe 5K runners travel through Winston-Salem’s beautiful Buena Vista neighborhood, while the half marathon course will continue through the Graylyn International Conference Center, Reynolda House and Gardens, through Reynolda Village, onto Wake Forest University’s campus, then circle back around to the William G. White, Jr. Family YMCA.

It’s sure to be another amazing run! While the Mistletoe Run is a popular family event with a 31 year history, it is also a sanctioned race for serious runners.

Race Start:  8:00 a.m. (Fun Run), 8:15 a.m. (Half Marathon), 8:25 a.m. (5K)

Our Goal

Our goal is not only to raise awareness of this problem, but also to fund childhood obesity programs that we know work. The YMCA’s Healthy, Fit and Strong program (formerly P.A.C.E.S) helps families understand and make healthier lifestyle and eating choices. Healthy, Fit and Strong has reached over 3,000 kids in our community so far. Included in this program is nutritional education for parents of obese children. The YMCA also provides an after-school physical activity curriculum and fitness classes for the entire family.

All of the net funds raised by the Mistletoe Run will go toward fighting childhood obesity. We need your support, now more than ever.
