2017 WYLD Obstacle Run - NW CT YMCA

Saturday, June 24th, 2017

The WYLD Obstacle Run is back for its sixth year, with this year's event returing to the City of Torrington. The WYLD Run will take place at beautiful Camp MOE, providing the perfect setting for a challenging race as well as a whole lot of fun afterward at the cookout and awards ceremony. 

Here at the Y, we believe that families who play together, stay together. The WYLD Run is a fantastic way for a family to share healthy values, all while helping others. Together, we can participate in a walk or run to benefit those who cannot afford the cost of Y programs.

Our goal is to provide events that bring families closer together, encourage good health and foster connections through fitness, fun and shared interests. Proceeds from the WYLD Run support financial assistance with the goal of ensuring that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grown and thrive at the Y.
