Welcome to the
The San Gabriel Valley YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through wellness classes, camps, family time, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.
With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.
Join us for a 1K / 5K/ 10k race with something for everyone! This race is a fun family event which also helps us raise funds for our youth scholarship program, to help kids from needy families participate in our classes, camping programs, and afterschool care!
Whether you're a beginner or an advanced runner, come out and get some exercise, fresh air, and refreshments...and maybe win a turkey!
