Event notes

Due to lower-than-expected registration, this event has been cancelled and any participant fees have been refunded.

The Event

This event runs in conjunction with the Annual Mathews Market Days on the 2nd weekend of September (weekend after Labor Day). Our event includes options of a 5k distance OR 1m Fun Run, both on a course that runs along sidewalks & trails. The 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), and we'll have a SWEET post-race raffle (home-baked goodies).

The Schedule

Race day registration & packet pickup on Saturday 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 $25 to $30 on race morning; 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 (approx) - allowing for all participants to finish. Stick around for Mathews Market Days celebration - the YMCA will be open for racers who want to clean up & change clothes between race & festival.

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

We've got an exciting 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.
