WHAT IS THE RACE OF CHAMPIONS?

The 5th Annual Race of Champions, formerly known as the Ken Brumbaugh Memorial Run, is a celebration of all people who have overcome challenges in life. In keeping with the memory of Ken, a courageous cancer survivor and enthusiastic member of the local running community, we invite all people to participate and champion for themselves and loved ones to kick off the running season.

REGISTRATION

Registrations may be mailed in, dropped off at the YMCA, or you may register online.

RACE NUMBERS & BIBS

Racers must wear a race number to show that you are a race participant. You will have a certain color bib pertaining to what race you are participating in. If you lose your bib or need a new one issued for any reason, you will be assessed a $5 fee.

RACE SHIRTS

The first 350 participants are guaranteed a long sleeve t-shirt. Please register early to guarantee yourself a t-shirt as we cannot guarantee t-shirts the week of the race.

For safety reasons, pets and headsets of any kind are not permitted.
