No searching for a parking space. No waiting for porta-potties. No having to run up that giant hill (unless you really, really want to!) Those are a few perks of this one being virtual!

The YMCA really wanted this event to happen in person this year, but with St. Al's as the presenting sponsor didn't feel right to put on an event that may make things harder for those on the front lines so they're going virtual one more year.

Those who sign-up for the virtual event will have from December 18-20 to complete their 1 mile, 2 mile or 6 mile run. All participants will get a shirt and the first 1,000 to pick up their packets will get Christmas Run gloves and an ornament. Those who register by December 12 will be entered to win a special Zoom call with Santa for their child.

The run is incredibly important to the Treasure Valley YMCA because they believe that everyone, regardless of their financial situation, deserves access to their services, support, and tools to help live better healthier lives. The funds from the run go toward helping the Y provide financial assistance and subsidized programming that allows kids, adults, and families can participate in everything the Y has to offer.

We want your whole family to be able to participate this year, so we'll give you two entries to get you started! Enter your info below to get in to win!
