2017 marks our 11th year! Join us for 10 fun-filled events for all ages. Because everyone has a #REASONTORUN!                                  

This year we run for children.  Proceeds from the 2017 YMCA of the North Shore Road Race Series will support local Y initiatives that combat childhood obesity.  Your support and generosity will allow us to better serve the needs of children in our community as we help them reclaim their health.
