Active Clubs

Get Moving Today!

San Diego County YMCA branches offer a variety of programs and events as part of Active Clubs that offer our members opportunities to get out and get moving! Activities range from organized walks to group hikes at some of San Diego’s best trails to local runs, walks and triathlons. Whether you're an avid hiker, a fitness enthusiast, or simply seeking to connect with others in your community, our clubs provide the perfect avenue for you to engage in activities while fostering a sense of community. 

We look forward to seeing you at one of our many active clubs!
