The Tri-Cities Family YMCA invites you to join us for the Coast Guard City USA Run! Whether you are an avid racer or an occasional walker, there is something for everyone and all ages are welcome. Our races consist of a US Track & Field certified 5K Run/Walk, a 10K Run/Walk and a 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk (be sure to bring your wagon or stroller). Join us for this fun family event as we promote healthy lifestyles and building community in the Tri-Cities area! See you on the race course!
Participants wishing to run both the 5k and 10k events only need to register for one event. Our timing system will register times for both at no extra charge!

We do not allow dogs at any of the race events.
We do allow jogging strollers, but please line up at the rear of the starting line.
We do offer a family discount for up to 4 participants at $75 total. Simply register the first participant, then select Multiple Person pricing and add the others. This option expires at 11:59 pm July 28th.
Our race shirts are a popular soft tri-blend. Shirts are not guaranteed-the sooner you register, the more likely you are to get your preferred size. The women's shirts run a bit small, therefore we recommend choosing one size up from what you might typically wear.
The cut-off date to be guaranteed a shirt is July 15th.
