The Y Race Phoenix, now in its 47th year, is the oldest road race in Arizona. The scenic rolling course starts and finishes at the 16,000-acre South Mountain Park, the largest municipal park in the country.
The courses are out and back routes run completely within the park, with spectacular views of striking desert landscape and the Phoenix skyline. With a Half Marathon and a 5K, there is something for everyone – from the competitive runner to walkers enjoying the picturesque setting.
The Y Race benefits the Lincoln Family Downtown YMCA’s Annual Support Campaign. These proceeds go towards our Military Families by offering subsidies to members of our Armed Forces. The Lincoln Family Downtown YMCA provides over $30,000 in membership subsidies annually.
