Run Series

Chasing Healthier Communities

Everybody is welcome! YMCA Races, Triathlons & Fun Runs embody the Y’s cause by being available for all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. They give adults, children, and families the ability to raise their spirits and their heartbeats through fun and competitive races.

By participating in our races, you help raise money and awareness that directly benefit our Community Integrated Health initiatives like LIVESTRONG® at the YMCA, YMCA Diabetes Prevention program, Healthy Weight and Your Child, and more.

Run in at least 4 out of these 6 races and earn a special Y Race Series t-shirt!
