Our seventh year for the Bud Shuster Run for Your Life Race is one of our most unique races as participants run along Route 36. This race will consist of a 5K run, 2 mile run and 2 mile walk. NEW THIS YEAR: 2 PERSON 10K RELAY! Find a teammate to run with to see how you do! One member of the team will start at 8am with the 5k participants and tag the next member on the team to go out for the 2nd 5k leg. This race is like no other around, find a teammate and give it a try1


Please register early to guarantee yourself a t-shirt. We cannot guarantee t-shirts the week of the race. Team members for the 10K  must check the 10K Relay box and write your teammates name in the *Optional team box. Team members will receive individual race points based on their leg of the 5k for the race series.

Note:  NO Race Reimbursements. NO PETS ALLOWED


Due to safety reasons, we ask to PLEASE refrain from using IPODS, MP 3 Players, or personal listening devices of any kind. The inside lane will be closed for runners; however, the outside WILL be open to traffic.  Please stay well inside the cones at ALL TIMES.

We try our best to have a safe event, however, always be on the lookout for vehicles. This course does take place in a busy section of town. Please listen to all Police and Road Marshals and follow their directions.

5K Run: Start and finish will be at the backside of the YMCA. One water stop will be at the turnaround on Convention Center Blvd. Teams in the 10k relay will follow the same 5k course. The relay will tag their teammate at the Start/Finish line.

2 Mile Run and Walk: Start and finish will be at the backside of the YMCA. Turnaround will be on Cedar Street where a road marshal will be standing. There will be NO WATER STATION for the 2 mile run/walk.




Parking will be between the Hollidaysburg Area YMCA and Hollidaysburg Junior High School.  Please try to come early as parking is limited.


Race packets will be available for pick up starting the Wednesday before the race. Race day Registration will be in the Main Entrance to the YMCA from 6:30 until 7:45am.  Please come early!


We are looking for volunteers to help as road marshals along the race course.  The race will start at 8:00am and will need all road marshals to meet between 7:15 and 7:30am at the old main entrance of the YMCA.

As a road marshal you will receive a race t-shirt and food after the race.  Ask a friend, family member or co-worker to come along with you and enjoy all the excitement of helping out and cheering on the race participants!

If you are interested in volunteering for the YMCA Bud Shuster Run for Your Life Race or have any questions, please contact Tina Kunstbeck in the Wellness Center or call 695-4467. We thank you in advance for your volunteered time!
