The French Quarter has Bourbon Street but we have the BEACH! Join us for the newest BEACH 5K in the country’s oldest city – the 2nd Annual St. Augustine YMCA Mardi Gras 5K and Fun Run on Sunday, February 19. The race will begin on St. Augustine Beach from the pier and head north toward Anastasia State Park on beautiful flat beach! There will be a live DJ from Beach 105.5 and a raffle at the end of the race for some great prizes. Wearing your festive best is encouraged!

Our Cause

Each year, the St. Augustine YMCA awards more than $100,000 in membership, swim lessons, summer camp and other program participation fees to individuals and families in our community. Funds raised in this event will ensure that no one will be turned away from the St. Augustine YMCA because of inability to pay.


Registration is available at the St. Augustine YMCA and online. For more information, contact Ashley Callahan.
