The Greater Pittston YMCA is proud to announce the 2nd annual Susquehanna Stride 5K and Half Marathon. The stride will take place Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 26th.

This year’s race sponsor is the Pennsylvania National Guard.

“We are very excited that the PA National Guard has decided to join us this year,” said Craig Lukatch, CEO. “A lot of planning goes into the Stride and we are very glad to have a supportive group helping out this year.”

Stride sponsorship is still available and helps put on this huge event where over 300 runners descend onto downtown Pittston. Volunteering for the Stride is also helpful.

“Without help from local business and community members we would not be able to put this on,” said Lukatch.

For more information on sponsorship and/or volunteering please contact Lukatch at 570-655-2255 ext.101, cluktach@greaterpittstonymca.org or by visiting the Y’s website at www.greaterpittstonymca.org.
