The registration fee is $25 in advance and $30 the day of the race. You can register online, pick up a registration form at Kelly’s Tavern, or the YMCA located at 3101 Maine Street. The race starts at 9:15 at Kelly’s Tavern on Broadway, with runners starting first followed by walkers.

All ages are invited to attend and even strollers are permitted. This is a family race to promote health, laughter and fun. The main part of the race will take place on Maine Street which is mostly flat. People would laugh at me if they saw me run (though I used to be one heck of a runner back in the day). I might even participate in this and bring the girls along with me.

All of the proceeds of the event go to fund the Dolphin Swim Team at the YMCA. The race is sponsored by Kelly’s Tavern, Rinella Company, Tower Pizza & Mexican, Gem City Pizzeria & Mexican and The Abbey.

For more information please contact the YMCA 222-9622 or quincyymca.net.
