SPORTS & RECREATION
We believe sports, fun and exploring new interests aren’t just for the young. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others. That’s why you’ll find a range of recreational activities at the Y. With something to offer everyone, there’s no such thing as being too old to get in the game.
AKRON AREA YMCA 5K/10K Series
5K/10k races are a great opportunity to get some exercise while supporting a great cause. Participants can participate in a Memorial race through Green, a 30-acre run in Nordonia Hills or a spooky Jack-O-Lantern Jog through historical downtown Akron.
AKRON MARATHON TRAINING 101
The Akron Area YMCA has partnered with the Akron Marathon to offer the Akron Marathon Training 101 program. The goal is to offer the necessary support to prepare you for successfully running the Annual Akron Marathon!
Adult Team Sports
Sports leagues at the Y provide a perfect opportunity to be active, social and reconnect or start fresh with a sport you love. Basketball, softball, volleyball and flag football are just some of the options available to get you on the court or into the game.
So many activities serve to restore our spirits and energy, get us outdoors or test our limits. Trail Rides, Rock Climbing, Walking Groups and Running Clubs give you the opportunity to try something new or discover a new passion.
