Built by and for the community, The Oneonta Family YMCA has been an anchor institution since 1883. Since 1883 our Y has been a proactive community member by listening and responding to the needs of our neighbors. We were founded to serve this growing community and to bring about positive personal and social change. We know that our exceptional and unique services will be even more important in the post-pandemic landscape. We need to be here, stronger than ever, as our services have never been more critical.

We need your support more now than ever before.

About the Event:
With the Covid-19 crisis, virtual races have given us a much-needed outlet for our athletic activities. Most importantly, we want you to get out and enjoy a run, walk or bike ride and contribute in a healthy way. Runners, walkers and bikers get to enjoy their selected miles (2.5K, 5K or 10K) any time or any place over the course of December which of course includes New Year's Eve. After the completion of the event, runners can submit their results here! If you are wearing an ugly sweater, post your photo with your bib and sweater to our Facebook Event Page for your chance to win some great prizes! 
Sign up, download the app and your custom bib, throw on this year's Ugly Christmas T-Shirt or an ugly sweater, run/walk/ride, submit your time, and accept our great appreciation for your support! 

The Course:
There is no official course. Run, walk or bike anywhere you choose - following the guidelines of shelter in place/social distancing.
