In partnership with the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon Series, Mission Valley YMCA is asking members to tell us why the Synchrony Rock 'n' Roll San Diego Marathon, Half Marathon or 5K will be your Best Race Ever. The events are June 2-3, 2018 We all draw on inspiration of some kind to help power us through a challenge. Tell us about yours! Whether it's your first race or your hundredth, we want to send you off with a free entry!

Winners will be announced early in mid-April and will receive a free race entry code — 10 people will get free entry to either the marathon, half marathon or 5K race. Note: Age and other restrictions may apply.

How to Enter

1) Submit your entry form online or pick up a hard copy entry form at the Welcome Center of either Mission Valley YMCA or Toby Wells YMCA.

2) Tell us "why it will be your best race ever" in the most creative way. For example: essay, photo, video, etc.

3) Submit your entry by April 13 either online or at the Welcome Center. Get some Y swag by being one of the first 15 entries!
