The Attleboro Norton YMCA is pleased to announce that we have received an invitational entry into the 2022 Boston Marathon, which is scheduled for Monday, April 18, 2022.

This means that the qualifying requirements are waived and the Y is able to provide a guaranteed entry into the race. Applications are for athletes who are a minimum age of 18.

The participant who is selected will run on behalf of the Attleboro Norton YMCA and will raise funds to support the Y’s Annual Campaign. This campaign helps fund the Y’s community support initiatives to fight food insecurity, to prevent drowning through free swim lessons for 2nd graders, to provide summer camp scholarships and subsidized memberships so that everyone in our community has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

The runner will be required to raise the Boston Marathon’s minimum of $8,500. 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.

The YMCA will provide the runner with fundraising and training support. Additionally, the runner will receive a YMCA team running uniform.

If you are interested in running for the Y, please return the 2022 Charity Runner Application or simply fill out the online form below by January 11th. Runners will be notified by January 14th.
