Spring 2020 YMCA STRIDE 5K Challenge is Canceled.

Within just a matter of weeks our world and our way of life have changed in ways we never could have imagined.  Each of us is struggling to make sense of the impact of this pandemic on our own lives today and going forward.  
At YMCA of GBW STRIDE, we have been following the directives of the CDC and local government and health organizations in an effort to remain informed and intentional in our decision making.  With the latest announcements by Governor Wolf closing schools for an additional week, along with the temporary closure of our affiliate, the YMCA of Greater Brandywine, we are heartbroken to announce that we have to CANCEL the Spring 2020 YMCA STRIDE 5K Challenge.

The Chester County YMCA STRIDE 5K Challenge is unlike any other running event. It is a celebration of, and for, the boys who have completed the STRIDE curriculum, including lessons and activities focused on character development, building confidence, and healthy living.  By the day of the 5K, their enthusiasm is so unbridled that they are running around before the race! Positive energy abounds as the boys are eager to achieve their goal of completing a 5K - many of them for the very first time.  Our 5K is a non-competitive, family friendly event that will bring a smile to your face, and we are very excited to be returning to the New Garden Flying Field this spring where you will RUN THE RUNWAY!!  We have worked hard to improve the experience at this venue and look forward to seeing you there.
You will be so glad you joined us for this incredible, unique, and inspiring event!
