Event notes

The Event

This event runs in conjunction with the Annual Mathews Market Days on the 2nd weekend of September (weekend after Labor Day). Our 2018 event includes options of a 5k distance OR 1m Fun Run, both on a new course (sidewalks & trails!) and a sweet post-race raffle. Our Race Giveaway Item (secret!) is guaranteed for the first 60 paid registrants (more may be available race day on a first come, first serve basis).

The Schedule

Packet Pickup will be open on Friday Sep 7th at the YMCA facility on Cricket Hill Road (new facility!!) between 4-6pm. Race day registration & packet pickup on Saturday Sep 8th will start at 6:45am and be open thru 7:20am only - we encourage pre-registration, as the cost for race day sign up increases (5k goes from $30 to $35 on 8th; the 1m Fun Run is always FREE).

The 5k race begins at 7:30am and the 1m Fun Run starts at 7:35am. The post-race awards and raffle will be held between 8:30-9:00am, approximately - allowing for all participants to finish.

The Cause

The Mathews Family YMCA, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, is the event host. 100% of the race proceeds go to the YMCA, which is dedicated to promoting healthy spirit, mind, and body for all (!

The Courses

As promised - and based on feedback - we've got a new course for the races. Starting at the Market Days festival location on Brickbat Road in Mathews Historic Courthouse, the 5k runs on sidewalks, to a shaded nature trail, to a school track, and returns on sidewalks. The 1 mile course is primarily sidewalks.

Awards & Raffle

Awards are presented to top Male & Female 5k finishers, and to the top 3 finishers in 5k age groups (12-under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80+). All 1m and 5k participants will be in the drawing for raffle prizes (the homemade desserts are back again this year). This will be a day you won't forget and will want to enjoy year after year!
