Pear Blossom Run Mayor’s Cup

The tradition of the Mayor’s Cup lives on! The 2021 Mayor’s Cup Fun Run will be a virtual event with lots of opportunity to connect with participants from the beautiful Rogue Valley, across the country, as well as around the world.

Participants will run either a 1 or 2 mile race, their choice.

How does it work?  Run or walk at your own pace from any location you choose.  You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym, or on the track.  You can do your event alone, with a friend, or with your whole family. Be sure to join in the fun contests and interact with us via social media, use #MayorsCupYMCA.

The Mayors Cup Benefits the Rogue Valley Family YMCA. All registration fees and donations go toward the YMCA’s Strong Communities Fund, which provides program and membership scholarships so all youth and families can participate at the Y regardless of income.

Fee: $15 – Registration includes a mailed race bib, finisher ribbon, and a shirt (if registered by March 21).

After March 22, the fee drops to $7 as shirts are no longer available.
