Bud Shuster Run for Your Life Race Description

Our 10th year for the Bud Shuster Run for Your Life Race is one of our most unique races as participants run along Route 36. NEW this year - our race distances will consist of a 1 mile run, 6K run and 2 mile walk.


Please register early to guarantee yourself a t-shirt. We cannot guarantee t-shirts the week of the race. Online registration will close at 11:00AM on April 20.

Racers must wear 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 want to change races, you may do so by calling the Hollidaysburg Area YMCA at 695-4467 before race day. NO CHANGES ON RACE DAY! If you lose your bib or need a new one issued, for any reason, there will be a $5 fee assessed. For safety reasons, headsets of any kind and pets are not permitted.

NO race registration reimbursements. Remember, if you cannot make it to the event, your registration fee is going towards a good cause.  


Due to safety reasons, we ask to PLEASE refrain from using IPODS, MP3 Players, or personal listening devices of any kind. The inside lane will be closed for runners; however, the outside WILL be open to traffic.  Please stay well inside the cones at ALL TIMES. We try our best to have a safe event, however, always be on the lookout for vehicles. This course does take place in a busy section of town. Please listen to all Police and Road Marshals and follow their directions. NO PETS ALLOWED
