Our USATF-certified The Y Run 5K is open to everyone—from seasoned runners to individuals completing their very first race. It doesn’t matter if you run or walk the course; the Y Run 5K is about promoting a healthy lifestyle and being active with your family, your friends and your community! And for our younger runners, we have the Super Kids 1 Mile Run (for ages 6-11), as well as a Super Kids Fun Run (for ages 5 and younger)—complete with capes!
