During its 42 year history, Lighthouse Run, presented by Educators Credit Union, The Journal Times and the Racine Family YMCA, has evolved into one of the premier road run/walks in the state of Wisconsin.  

That tradition continues in 2020 with the Image Management 10 Mile Run, Twin Disc  4 Mile Run, Modine 4 & 2 Mile Fun Run/Walk, Landmark Credit Union Kids Power Race and Cree Mascot Challenge. Offering both competitive and non-competitive events, Lighthouse Run serves as the official kick-off to summer fitness awareness.

Proceeds from your participation in the Lighthouse Run help support the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign.

Your contribution helps us provide program support and financial assistance to youth and families who need it in our community. Only by working together can we give more kids the opportunity to grow strong in spirit, mind and body.

Twin Disc 4 Mile Competitive and Image Management 10 Mile Competitive Division - We will utilze USATF Rules for Awards. 


USATF Rule 245.1 states “The order in which the athletes cross the finish line will be the official finish position.” Further, Rule 245.3 – regarding transponder timing – “the actual time elapsed between an athlete reaching the starting line and the finish line can be made known to the athlete, but will not be considered as the official time.” In short, official time per USATF rule is gun time. Learn more here.
