This year, we offer the Metro Way 5K, YMCA Youth Races as a hybrid event - LIVE at University of Michigan Health-West Hospital or VIRTUAL at a location of your choosing. You can choose to walk, jog, run or crawl your favorite 5K (3.1 mile) route with us, or on your own within the specified time frame. If you select the virtual option, we ask you to upload your results, and we will send your Finisher's Medal and Participant Shirt to you. Please note that runners who choose the virtual option are not eligible to win their age group. Results must be uploaded by 11:59 on July 21. Every cent raised goes right back into our community by providing free and low cost educational health and wellness classes.

Thank you to all of our sponsors, specifically our Presenting Sponsor, Lake Michigan Credit Union and Registration Sponsor, Kasco.
