Media coverage is welcome.

Presented by the Greensburg YMCA, the race will start on Urania Ave., near Sunset Café and end at Offutt Field in Greensburg, taking participants through town.  Walkers will partially continue their route on the 5-Star Trail, splitting at Huff Avenue, and finishing back on the Five Star Trail.

Overall and age group awards will be given. Cash prizes for top three male and female overall.  There also will be awards presented to the top-three finishers in each age category in a ceremony after the race at Offutt Field.  A kids’ race follows at 9:30 a.m. at the stadium.

Proceeds benefit the Steve Snider Memorial Scholarship fund for the Greensburg Salem School District, youth activities at the Greensburg YMCA, and the revitalization of the City of Greensburg playgrounds.  The long-time, award-winning and beloved teacher and track/cross country coach passed away in February 2022, after a long battle with heart complications.
