This race is now a Virtual Race!

Due to the uncertainty surrounding group events over the next several months, we have changed this 5K to a Virtual Fun Run.

Note the event date has changed from May 2 to May 15 through May 31, 2020.

You will still receive race swag for you and your furry running partner: human race shirt, finisher medal and dog tag.  

The dog costume contest will take place virtually, on our facebook event page.  Details forthcoming.

Contact Branch Director, Jennifer Hockensmith, with questions.  

Here Are Your Options:

Post your race route, running photos and furry friend costume pictures on our facebook event page (details to be posted soon).  Use #YTrails&Tails


In lieu of receiving race swag and running the virtual race, you will donate your registration fee to the YMCA disease prevention and management initiative that serves adults with cancer, arthritis and heart and lung challenge.  Funds also support a family lifestyle program for children carrying excess weight.

Run for FREE!

YOU + 3 Friends = FREE Registration

Your registration fee will be refunded when 3 of your friends signup for the fun!  Share your unique referral code with others.  Offer expires April 26, 2020.
