We've Gone Virtual!

Due to the recommendations from the CDC and the State of Michigan, we are changing Race for YMCA 5K/10K  into a virtual race. With a virtual race, you can run the distance anywhere, for example in your neighborhood, on a treadmill, at a nearby park, or on our original course! You will have between Saturday, July 18, 2020 and Sunday, July 26, 2020, to complete your race. Once you have your 5K/10K completed you will send in your time to the run sign-up website. Instructions for this will follow.

You will pick-up your Race for YMCA 5K/10K shirts at the YMCA. More details to follow.

If you have already registered, but don’t want to participate in the Virtual 5K/10K, you have the following options:

  1. Transfer your registration to our virtual event.
  2. Donate your registration fees to the Y.
  3. Refund your registration fees.

Please fill out the survey, linked here, to tell us how you'd like to proceed with your current registration.

We appreciate your consideration and generosity as we all work together to support our community, neighbors, and local businesses! 


Proceeds from the race will benefit the Benton Harbor-St. Joseph YMCA's annual campaign which provides financial assistance for memberships and programs to local children and families in need. Your support helps guarantee that everyone—regardless of their circumstances or ability to pay—can belong to the Y.
