Big Cheese - 5K

Welcome to Athol Area YMCA's Big Cheese 5K!

Whether you’ve been with us from our humble beginnings in 2010 or are new to this “Cheesy Experience,” we are so glad to have you as a part of the race.

The Big Cheese 5K is a blast! You’ll feel accomplished. And most importantly, you’ll know that you’ve done your part to help others in need.

This year proceeds will be donated towards the "Partner With Youth Campaign", which ensures that the YMCA is there for those that need it most.

So whether you’re a hard core runner or a happy-go-lucky walker, please join us and bring a friend, or even the whole family (strollers welcome). And if you’re so inspired, feel free to wear a wacky costume. We love wacky costumes!

We hope you will join us to celebrate our little town and show community pride with two unique races, The Big Cheese 5K and the River Rat Race.

All you have to do is show up and chase the cheese. You might even catch yourself a block of award-winning Smith’s Country Cheese to take home with you. That and bragging rights, definitely bragging rights!

See you at the race!
