During its 41 year history, Lighthouse Run,has evolved into one of the premier road run/walks in the state of Wisconsin. That tradition continues in 2020.

Racine YMCA's Lighthouse Run is changing to a “Remote Run” (aka virtual) in 2020.

For the first time since 1978 when the first race was held, the annual Racine YMCA Lighthouse Run will be changing to a "Remote Run" format. YMCA CEO Jeff Collen said, "It is with great sadness that, due to escalating conditions surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and with Racine's recent extension to limit large events until after July 31, the race will be changed to a "remote runners" format. We know this is disappointing, however, we feel a gathering of over 2,000 people in Downtown Racine is just not the responsible thing to do." The Y has teamed up with to orchestrate this year's "remote" Lighthouse Run.
