Ringing in Spring – Valparaiso YMCA

The Valparaiso Family YMCA will host Ringing In Spring 5K Run/Walk and 10K Run on Saturday, April 4th, 2020  at the Valparaiso Family YMCA at 1201 Cumberland Crossing Drive in Valparaiso. This is the race where Indiana begins the running season.

The 25th Annual event brings athletes of all abilities together to support the Y at the largest springtime race in Northwest Indiana and features a local course through the neighborhoods surrounding the YMCA.

The race is a Gold Cup Elite Series certified race, and includes chip timing, gear check, early shirt/bib pick-up, USATF certified course, water stops, awards, and free child care (pre-registration is required). Each registered participant receives a long-sleeve t-shirt.

Participants are encouraged to register in advance at to receive reduced rates. Registration is available up until and on the day of the event, but increased rates will apply at the door. As always, participants are encouraged to form a team of 5 or more in our 5K race, bringing together friends and family to challenge themselves to complete the course. Each team’s fastest times will count towards team scoring. Discounted entry fee included.

Ringing In Spring is family-friendly race and will feature a Family Express Post-Race Party, along with music and entertainment along the course.

Running enthusiasts and all Y supporters are invited to participate or attend the event to raise funds and awareness to support the Annual Campaign at the Y. The Annual Campaign assists the Y in providing scholarship assistance to low income individuals, those with disabilities, and social service agencies, so that everyone who seeks better health and well-being has access to the facilities and programs of the Valparaiso Family YMCA. It is the Mission of the Y that no individual be turned away due to the inability to pay

Extra Mile Fitness, located at 1330 E. Lincolnway, provides early packet pick-up services.

Pick your pace, run or walk, and join the Y movement at this year’s Ringing In Spring 5K/10K held annually on the first Saturday of April. The proceeds support our Annual Campaign at the Valparaiso Family YMCA, helping to keep our community strong.
