The 2018 Boxing Day 10 & 4 mile runs were enjoyed by 800 runners and walkers. The mild conditions gave us course records in the 10 mile male and female run, and in the 4 mile male run. The team of volunteers both at the YMCA and on the course came back with smiles as well. We will donate $5,000 to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign helping local youth with YMCA programs.

My Best Runs rates us as a 9.2 out of 10 Ontario Athletics

Each year the Hamilton Harriers donates $5,000 to YMCA strong kids campaign. This helps local children participate in programs. You can donate too! YMCA Stong Kids Campaign

At the finish all entrants receive a made in Canada finishers medal and a fleece blanket to keep them warm on the short walk back to the YMCA. $3,000 cash purse, plus age group medals. Our post race social is at the Pheasant Plucker Pub which is a short walk from the YMCA. The first beer is on us.
