Childcare Available at the Y!

Kids not ready to run just yet? That’s no reason to let them miss out on all the fun! The Y will be holding childcare in our gymnasium from 6:15-8:15PM for all our racers.

Kids will have the chance to party with our childcare staff, enjoy a bounce house provided by Backyard Bouncin’ Party Rentals of Berwick, and take part in a 1K mini-race in our gymnasium!

Delicious Food!

After you’ve finished your run, relax with a cup of hot chocolate and a snack from some of our area’s fantastic food trucks, including Homestead Barbecue!

50/50 + Prize Pack!

Support the YMCA and win some great prizes! We will be holding a 50/50 throughout the evening, with more than just half the pot on the line! The winner will also receive a duffel bag LOADED with fitness items like a jumprope, a yoga mat, and more!

First time running a race, or working on your personal best?

There are lots of ways to prepare for a run, and the Y is happy to help! You may want to take some of our fitness classes to build up your aerobic base. Taking a few personal training sessions is another great way to make sure you’re ready when the night comes!
