Thanksgiving Day Run
2013 Annual Thanksgiving Day Run
Every Thanksgiving, hundreds of runners gather in Niles to run in the Thanksgiving Day Run in support of the Y's financial assistance fund.
You, your family and friends are invited to participate in one of our four great races. Our 10K/5K races, 5K Walk and 1 mile fun run/walk are open to you and the entire family. Add a whole infield of entertainment and you have a Thanksgiving tradition that appeals to every generation while raising money for a critical social service in our community.

on business 31 which will take you right to the YMCA.
- If you are coming from the East take 12 to the intersection of Main and 13th
street go straight on 13th street and follow that down turn left on Wayne street.
At the intersection of 5th street and Wayne you can turn left, go straight or
turn right and find parking on the backside of the YMCA.
SCORING WITH THE “CHRONO TRACK SYSTEM”
We will be scoring the races and walk with the “Chrono Track System.” This computer chip attaches to your shoe and when you cross the finish line you will be automatically scored. This added technology allows us to score the events much faster. “Chrono Track System” will be handed out during packet pick up and on race morning at the YMCA.
There will be take home awards for the overall winners in the running and walking events. Awards will be presented to the top three runners in all categories in the 10K Run and 5K Run/Walk. The 1 mile fun run is a non-competitive event.
