ABOUT #BERNIESRUN

Bernie Hargadon, a past YMCA director, prime athlete and originator of this race, passed away from an unforeseen genetic heart condition.  Bernie's dream was to create an achievable race for everyone.  In 1984 he did it and thousands of runners have achieved Bernie's dream since then.

Year over year we continue to grow the race and help Bernie's dream live on.  Since being memorialized, Bernie's Run has grown to serve nearly 700 runners annually and their families and friends.

Wilkes-Barre Family YMCA makes an impact in the local community with proceeds from Bernie's Run supporting heart health and wellness programs at the YMCA.  We use funds to create and implement beneficial programs with state of the art equipment so that we can serve our local community on their health and wellness journey.
