The Valley of the Sun YMCA, the state’s oldest nonprofit, is celebrating 120 years serving the people of Arizona throughout the month of October. Capping off the celebration month is the 44th running of the Y Race Phoenix at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27 at South Mountain Park.

For the 16th year running, longtime YMCA member Wyatt Earp will start the race with his signature double barrel shot gun start in the tradition of the Old West. New this year the Y Race has added a free, mile-long Fun Kids Run, expanded expo, live entertainment, Halloween costume contest, and trusted YMCA Child Watch services for participants with children ages 3 through 12.

Registration is now open for the half marathon and 5K run/walk at yracephoenix.com.

The Y Race is a fundraiser for the Downtown Lincoln Family YMCA Strong Kids & Families annual campaign. For more information, call (602) 257-5121 or email gcorns@vosymca.org.
