Mathews Market Days

Click here to view RESULTS for Mathews Market Days Race, Sep 8th 2018


The Mathews Family YMCA is pleased to once again host the 5k race and 1-mile fun run this year in conjunction with the annual Mathews Market Days festival. This year – new location for the start/ finish: we’ll be right in the middle of the Market Days event in the Mathews Historic Courthouse. Awards will be presented to the fastest Male & Female overall 5k-plus finisher, and to the top finishers in 9 age groups. All of the 1-mile finishers will receive a ribbon at the end of the course. Stick around after both races are complete for the post-race raffle – and you may just win scrumptious homemade treats.

The Market Days 5k course starts (7:30am) on a paved road, then narrows to a sidewalk as it passes the Elementary & Middle Schools. Then it leads into a wooded trail and a short stretch of grass, before returning back to the Historic Courthouse along the sidewalks. The 1-mile Fun Runners will start their race at 7:35am following the paved & sidewalks in-and-out of the Market Days area.
