The Attleboro YMCA is pleased to announce that we have received one invitational entry into the 2020 Boston Marathon, thanks to the Coogan family. This means that the qualifying requirements are waived and the Y is able to provide a guaranteed entry into the race. This year’s marathon will be held on April 20, 2020. Applications are for athletes who are a minimum age of 18 as of April 20, 2020.

The participants who are selected will run on behalf of the Attleboro YMCA and will raise funds to support the Attleboro Y’s Annual Campaign and summer camp scholarship program to ensure that every young person in our community has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Charity Runner: The runner will be required to raise a minimum of $10,000. The fundraising minimum should be considered a step to even higher fundraising goals. We seek team members who are truly interested in raising significant funds to help our cause.

Qualified Team Runners: Runners who already have qualified for the race and have secured an entry, may also join the Y team with a fundraising minimum of $1,500.

Members of the Attleboro YMCA marathon team will be provided fundraising and training support. Additionally, members will receive a YMCA team running uniform.
