Pear Blossom Run

Pear Blossom Run

The Pear Blossom Run presented by Asante is the YMCA’s largest fundraising event, bringing together runners and walkers from all over Oregon and beyond to enjoy either the 10-Mile or 5K race while raising funds to the support the work of the Rogue Valley Family YMCA.

Join us each year on the second Saturday in April for this annual event as we take over downtown and bring our running (or walking) to the streets. All the races are concluded by 11:00am for the start of the Pear Blossom Parade. This is truly a Saturday in Downtown Medford that you don’t want to miss.

If you are looking to register for the Mayor’s Cup Fun Run, please follow the link.

Shirt sales only (without an event registration) will be available at packet pickup or on race day at the start/finish line while supplies last.
