Race of Champions Description

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:

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. Online registration closes at 11:00AM on March 27.

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 Blair Regional 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.
