About This Activity

All fitness levels and all ages are invited to have a spooktacular time with the Canandaigua YMCA’s Jack-O-Lantern jog. All proceeds benefit the Canandaigua YMCAs Annual Campaign, which enables us to welcome everyone as members and program participants at the Y, regardless of financial status. Families are encouraged to participate in this event together. We will also have a Jack-O-Lantern Dash for young children (under the age of 8).

Costumes are encouraged as this event will kick off a Halloween themed day in Downtown Canandaigua. After the race enjoy refreshments, raffles, family fun – including costume prizes, bounce house time & pumpkin crafts at our Y. It will be a fun-filled fall morning at the YMCA you don’t’ want to miss.

CASH PRIZES for Top Place Male & Female, 1st and 2nd Place winners. Age group prizes for top female and male winners.

Online registration is open through October 22. Registration after that date can be done in person at the Canandaigua YMCA. Price increase: $30/individual, $25/team of 5, $10 for Kids Dash.

Need childcare? We will open up the YMCA Childwatch for non-members as well during the race (8:30-11am). Pre-registration for Childwatch is mandatory. Information will be sent out to all registered participants.
