YMCA Races in Colorado Springs

Races

The YMCA of the Pikes Peak Region is excited to host a variety of races! The Race Series, USATri60 and S'more Adventure Race welcomes all ages and abilities to participate in a fun day of friendly competition, contests and community comradery.

As a non-profit dedicated to strengthening the community, the Y has a need to raise charitable funds. These funds ensure that all community members have access to the Y and advance programs that address community needs in the areas of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Your race entry helps continue to support Colorado Springs' kids, adults and families to benefit from our programs. In 2017, we distributed $1.5 million in financial assistance to those experiencing hardships and those needing access to the Y's services and programs.

The S'more Adventure Race at Camp Shady Brook YMCA includes competitive and non-competitive teams racing 10 to 15 miles in a variety of activities such as cross-country running, hiking, mountain biking, canoeing, rock climbing and other challenges! If you want to race with your youngins, register for a family team to compete in a shorter yet still adventurous course!

With your adventurous nature and philanthropist's heart, you have the option to stay the entire weekend and participate in UpaDowna's Folk'n'Flannel Festival and Fundraiser! When you participate in the S'more Adventure Race, you make it possible for more local kids to attend camp at Camp Shady Brook YMCA. When you participate in the Folk'n'Flannel Festival and Fundraiser, you are helping UpaDowna continue to fill the need, "within the outdoor community to educate and promote adventure for all ages and abilities which include folks looking towards either an introduction to the outdoors or an advancement on presently held skills." When you do both, you do good!
