The 16th Annual Cotton Classic Goes Virtual for 2020                         


The YMCA had to suspend the May 2nd hosting of our annual charity event. As so many of us reorder our lives due to the pandemic, this 5K event (run or walk), the Virtual Cotton Classic, is a chance to support a great cause and get in some exercise!

The need of those generous donations to help the Y help others has not gone away. In order to promote a healthy lifestyle, raise charitable funds and let everyone participate this year we have made some changes to the Cotton Classic.

Our virtual race will be from July 3-12. A virtual race can be run (or walked!) anytime and anywhere, even indoors on a treadmill. Participants in virtual races earn medals or T-shirts for themselves while raising money for charity. 

It is easy to sign up for our 16th annual event. Click on this link to get started:

Simply register by choosing the entry option you desire. Complete the 5K distance between July 3-12 anywhere you desire (even on a treadmill!). Download/enter your time to the raceroster website. An order of finish will be posted within a few days after the race period ends. You can pick up your medal and/or T-shirt or we will mail you a finisher’s medal at the end of the race period.

This is for anyone. Young or old, fast or slow – we encourage participants of all ages and ability levels

This is not about hard rules than it is about providing motivation to help with your personal goal setting, while raising money for a great cause in the process.

So set your goal – whatever it may be – and go out and accomplish it! Have friends and family join in. It is a chance for a fun experience to start off the month of July!

The Y Thanks You for choosing to support us!
