YMCA 5K Race Series & Kids Fun Runs

Every person deserves the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. At the Y, we know when people work together, we can move individuals, families and the community forward.

Join us for three races and one great cause during the Y’s 5K Race Series. These fundraising events include the Creepy Crawl on Oct. 28, the Turkey Trot on Nov. 23 and the Jingle Bell on Dec. 9.

Costumes are encouraged (and add to the fun of helping the Y strengthen our community!).

Each race is stroller friendly! Dogs/animals are not permitted. No refunds or financial assistance available.

Last year, the YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region provided nearly $1.5 million in financial assistance and subsidies to ensure that no one was turned away for the inability to pay. As a result, children and teens, families, adults and seniors enjoyed community by connecting through membership at the Y, Day Camp, Before and After School, Camp Shady Brook, Youth Sports, Teen Clubs, Family Nights, Book Clubs and more.
