Brookville YMCA & Western PA CARES for Kids Duathlon, 5K & Community Walk Race Description
Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 safety restrictions here in PA, our 2020 event had to be cancelled, but we hope to see you this year!
Join us on Saturday, July 17, 2021 at Shelter 2 in the beautiful Cook Forest State Park for our 12th annual race! Our race offers 2 different timed events, a community walk and fun for the whole family!
*The 5K is a 3.1 mile race on a mix of trails and paved roads in Cook Forest.
*The Duathlon consists of a 3.1 mile run then a 12 mile bike ride and ends with another 2 mile run. Many participate in this event as teams of 2 or 3, but this event can also be done solo.
Both the 5K and the Duathlon events are timed, however, the 2 mile Community Walk event is not timed.
- cash prizes for race winners
- free picnic lunch for all racers and spectators after the event
- great raffles including gift cards and tickets to local theme parks and sporting events
