The Mistletoe Half Marathon, 5K, and Fun Run is going virtual for 2020! While this is not a route any of us would like to have to take, we are grateful that it is a route that allows us to continue this event during this time with the opportunity to come back in person bigger and better in 2021.
Participants will can choose to run/walk the actual route of the event (Half, 5K, or 1 mile) or you can complete the distance from anywhere you choose.
The Mistletoe Run is a great way to start the holiday season! Our Mistletoe 5K runners travel through Winston-Salem’s beautiful Buena Vista neighborhood, while the half marathon course will continue through the Graylyn International Conference Center, Reynolda House and Gardens, through Reynolda Village, onto Wake Forest University’s campus, then circle back around to the William G. White, Jr. Family YMCA.
At the Y, we believe every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. That includes living a healthy life. Our community is facing a childhood obesity crisis. We are working to provide the resources, motivation, and activities to help stop childhood obesity and affect positive change. At the Y, children stay active through youth sports, swimming, and so much more. But many can’t afford the full cost to participate. Funds from the YMCA MistletoeRun help provide financial assistance so all kids are able to participate. In addition, the Y partners with local schools and other programs to provide innovative programming to help children build healthy habits that last for life.
