The YMCA offers a variety of running and swimming races and triathlons throughout the year. The Wilmington Family YMCA established a race series consisting of 8 running events to inspire community health and involvement. The series kicks off in March with the Beach Dash Course and ends in December with its William H. Craig Race for Life 5K.

Additionally the Y hosts three triathlons, one being the annual PPD’s Beach2Battleship Iron and Half-Iron Distance Triathlon. The YMCA Sprint Triathlon is held in September each year in Wrightsville Beach, NC along with a Kids Triathlon in July for children ages 5-13.

 Another local favorite is the YMCA’s Pier-To-Pier race, where swimmers race along the coast of Wrightsville Beach, NC swimming from pier to pier.

 Money raised from each of these races goes towards the YMCA’s Annual Giving Campaign which provides funding for community outreach programs like Livestrong at the YMCA, Diabetes Prevention Program in addition to program and membership scholarships. A complete list of races can be found on the website.
