The YMCA is first and foremost a cause-driven and charitable organization helping hundreds of thousands of men, women and children across the country each year.
All of the proceeds from these races benefit youth and family programs at the Harrisburg Area YMCA. Together these events have raised close to $1,000,000 since they have been in existence.
The races attract people from mainly the Mid-Atlantic region, although we have had participants from all over the United States. The Harrisburg riverfront serves as a beautiful location to have the YMCA races, and its flat surface allows for people of all experiences to do any of our events.
Come out and support a worthy cause in your community, THE YMCA, by running for fun in one of our small races or really competing by trying to qualify for the Boston Marathon at the Harrisburg Marathon.
