Help us celebrate the new year with a 5k run or a 2k walk on New Year’s Eve!
In the history of the race it has only been postponed once because of heavy snow, and shortened once for safety when a portion of the course was under a blanket of ice. The usual turnout is about 100 runners.
Both races begin and end at the Decatur Family YMCA (220 W. McKinley Ave in Decatur, IL)
The 5k race will pass by Decatur Memorial Hospital, left to Monroe, then north and turn at Miles Nissan for the return leg.
The 2k race will stay within 2 blocks of the YMCA. Fans and supporters are encouraged to come and cheer.
Refreshments will be available at the Decatur Family YMCA after the race.
Race proceeds benefit the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.
