Race Series

The YMCA of Columbia is hosts a series of races each year, from 5K run/walks and kids’ fun runs to more intense 12Ks and triathlons, there is a race for everyone!

Proceeds benefit the YMCA of Columbia Annual Campaign, which allows the Y to live by its mission to never turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. Last year, through generous donations, the YMCA of Columbia helped 9,400 participants including youth, families, adults and seniors in our community.
