Y Run Training Programs
(for adults & kids!)
A 5k and 2K run that benefits the scholarship program at the Southlake Branch YMCA. Did you know that the Southlake Y doesn’t turn anyone away for the inability to pay? Money raised from this event goes to the YMCA scholarship program. Those scholarships are given to low income individuals and families so they can participate in programs and membership.
This community event has steadily grown in popularity and we're expecting 2,000 runners at the start line at Crown Point's historic downtown courthouse square. Register the whole family for this fun event and enjoy the post-race party on the square!
Awards given to Top Female and Male Overall; first, second & third place finishers in each age division for the 5K run; and Overall. Plus, awards given to the elementary school with the most participants!
Friday April 8, Time TBD OR Race day at the southeast corner of the square from 8 - 9:30 a.m.
