Running a 5K is one of the great human challenges, alongside raising a child and peeling a ripe mango without basically ruining it. Go the distance with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $30 for entry in the Color for a Cause 5K (up to a $60 value)
  • $20 for entry in the one-mile Family Fun Run (up to a $40 value)

These runs take place on Sunday, August 4 and raise money for the YMCA Cambodia Project, a cultural exchange to strengthen the organization’s programming in Cambodia. While they trot down the path, runners will be showered in nontoxic paint powder that livens up the proceedings and acts as camouflage in case they take a wrong turn and end up in a Jimi Hendrix album. The course is mostly grass and stroller-friendly, and there are no street crossings or curbs. All ages are welcome, though pets are not allowed. Runners should check-in on the day of the race between 8-9:30 a.m, at the race start and finish line west of the lake in the middle of the park.

YMCA of Greater Long Beach

Founded in 1884, the YMCA of Greater Long Beach has been around longer than there's been a city of Long Beach. The community center—one of the oldest and largest of its kind—is equipped to handle more than 30,000 people or 18,000 gorillas annually. Besides its six community branches, 25 after-school sites, and five early childcare programs, the YMCA maintains a 230-acre camp area in the Big Bear area. In town, toddlers can attend childcare programs; kids can take martial arts and basketball lessons; teens can develop their leadership skills; adults can sign up for sports classes of their own; and the whole family can enjoy the pool.
