Thank you for running with us!

For 36 years, the Niles-Buchanan YMCA has hosted a Thanksgiving Day Run in the community. Last year, over 2,200 people from multiple states participated in the 10k run, 5k run/walk, or 1 Mile Fun Run. 

Proceeds from the Thanksgiving Day Run support our Annual Campaign, which benefits youth programming as well as financial support to families through membership scholarships. 

Keep an eye out for next year's registration.
