Run for the Bagel 2017

Join us for the 30th anniversary of the Mattoon Area Family YMCA’s Run for the Bagel!

When:  Saturday, July 22, 2017

Choose from the 5K walk/run or the 10K run which both begin at 6:30am

The course is a flat and partially shaded path with bagels at the finish line.  This early morning start time will help you beat the heat of the day plus will allow you time to enjoy the Bagelfest parade.  Both races will be chip timed and official results will be recorded.  Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each age/gender division for both the 5K and 10K.
