Burn the Bird - Thanksgiving Day 5k/10k

Each year, the YMCA partners with SoleMOTION to bring you the Annual Burn the Bird Thanksgiving Day Run! Get fresh air and a good ‘burn’ going with the 5K run/walk or the 10K run before sitting down for your Thanksgiving dinner.

All ages and fitness levels welcome! Proceeds from Burn the Bird go to benefit the LIVESTRONG program at the YMCA which helps local cancer survivors find community and improve their health.
