The North Canton July 4th Race is a 2-mile or a 5-mile event. The 5-mile is part of the Ohio Challenge Series. There is a Firecracker Dash (100 yards) for children ages 6 and under. We welcome athletes of all ages and abilities, and have a separate starting time for wheelchair participants.
Proceeds from our race go to our Annual Campaign. We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. Every day, the North Canton Community YMCA gives our community the support it needs to learn, grow and thrive. From advocacy to affordable programs, disease prevention to athletics, soccer to dance classes, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhood and the people who live here.
