1K retro (backwards) run

The YMCA is partnering with the Hamilton Marathon Road2Hope to raise funds for the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign at the YMCA of Hamilton/Burlington/Brantford.  Together we can make it possible for a child with special needs to join in YMCA Day Camp with their peers, send an inner city kid to YMCA Wanakita to canoe for the first time. You'll help a young person in YMCA Leader Corp Program to gain self-esteem and teach a new-comer youth life-saving swimming skills in our pools.  Your support will give a local child in need the chance to experience the joys of childhood and the courage and confidence to be a leader in their own life.  Visit ymcahbb.ca to learn more.

You will be running 1K backwards!

A few details:

  • You have 30 minutes to complete the 1K route.
  • It is recommended that everyone have a spotter to guide you.
  • For anyone under 13, a spotter is required in order to participate.
  • Spotters can pick up a bib and sign up and the Retro Run table when they arrive on race day.
  • After you register, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to set up your pledge page. 

    Be sure to set up your profile page and choose YMCA of Hamilton/Burlington/Brantford as your charity in order to have people pledge to you and have it directed accordingly.
