Upcoming Events

The Lakewood YMCA is now holding online registrations for our 4th of July Firecracker Run. This Run has been part of the Lakewood Community for many years. We were saddened when events were being canceled due to the pandemic. Thanks to technology and a few gracious sponsors, we were able to save the race! Although there will be many changes the course will remain the same. Your family members and supporters will still be able to keep track of you from afar and root you on.

The Race will be held on Saturday, July 4th & Sunday, July 5th. It will still consist of the 10k Run, 2 mile run and 2 mile walk. There are three easy steps, 1) sign up online at https://runsignup.com/…/Lak…/LakewoodYFirecracker10K2MileRun
2.) Download the RaceJoy App. 3.) Show up to the designated start in the 24-48 hour time period, push start and you are on your way. The GPS technology will give runners directions, mile splits, projected finish time, and Encouragement. Supporters can track runner’s progress and send messages. At the finish, runners will receive their time and place on live leader board. Runners are also able to submit time via text message or through their RunSignUp profile. Prizes will be awarded to the first 3 overall male and female finishers. Age group awards to the top 3 finishers in each division.

The cost of the race is $10 (no shirt) or $20 with T-shirt. We would like to thank our sponsors LakeShore Paving, M&T Bank, Orion Tradesmen, Western NY Urology Associates, LLC, Jamestown Kitchen & Bath and Mr.& Mrs. Brian Mallory for their donations for allowing us to continue our traditions
