Bernie's Run is a flat, achievable course for all to run or walk. Since 1984, it is a valued tradition celebrating our nation's birthday and representing the dream of one man, Bernie Hargadon, a past director our YMCA. Join us to continue this family friendly tradition!
At the Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA, we believe strengthening people leads to a stronger, more caring community. We work with people who share our beliefs and mission and show their support by giving their time, talent, and financial support. By inspiring and involving people, we live our mission and put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
The YMCA is a cause-driven organization focused on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Every day we nurture the potential of kids, help people live healthier lives, and support our neighbors in need--because we believe in strengthening our community.
Everyone deserves to be part of our YMCA, regardless of ability to pay. At the Y, our doors are open to all. Our financial aid program insures that promise. And it is through the generosity of local individuals, businesses, and special events that guarantees financial aid to all those in need. Together...we build strong communities!

Start Mats! Bernie's Run will be officially timed from start to finish. Whether you choose to walk or run, we can give you an accurate time from when your cross the start to when you push through the shoot. Less jam up at the front line, easier for runners to take off and walkers can cross without commotion.
For safety for all, please make sure you line up behind the runners at the start. With a timed start, your chip will know when you cross the start line and begin timing your walk. Thank you!

Pets are NOT allowed on race course.
