||The Spirit of Gettysburg 5K travels the first day of the historic Battle of Gettysburg, past the Eternal Light Peace Memorial. If you love road races, or want to run in one for the first time, the Spirit of Gettysburg 5K is for you.
The YWCA staff and volunteers work hard to ensure the success of this race. The YWCA Spirit of Gettysburg is more than a 5K. This is truly a fun, family event.
Nothing better illustrates determination than those who for one reason or another are physically disabled but complete our 5K wheelchair race. Everyone at the finish line gets goosebumps as this great group of athletes crosses the finish line.
The one-mile fun run and fitness walk allows those who do not wish to complete 3.1 miles to participate in the festivities.
And we certainly do not forget the children. Volunteers and spectators love to watch the gleeful look on the youngsters’ faces as they complete the Kids’ 1-mile run, Kids’ 1/4 mile Sprint or Mini Trot.
Everyone’s registration fee adds up to make the YWCA an awesome community center that works to eliminate racism and empower women while offering a fitness center, childcare, aquatics center, Road Scholar Adventures in Lifelong learning, and so much more!
