A Bushel of Fun 

The 34th Annual Applefest 10k/15k run and 5k run/walk are a part of the Lebanon, Ohio Applefest held each year. All 3 race distances will start near the outdoor pool pavilion. The 5k is mostly a flat route on Deerfield Rd sidewalk, then take a right onto Turtle Creek Union Rd, right on Natalie Lane to the end of the street, right onto the bike trail, right onto the sidewalk, right into the YMCA entrance and finish line. The 10k splits left onto the bike trail with a turnaround back to the YMCA following the same finish as the 5k. The 15k goes further out on the bike trail before turning around and heading back to the YMCA.

We love giving back to our community through our outreach programs. Our Applefest 5k/10k/15k run/walk proceeds help support those causes. Please join us to keep going and giving!

How will race proceeds benefit the Y?

Here at Countryside YMCA, we support the community year-round with outreach efforts. Your participation in the Applefest Run helps fund LiveSTRONG® at the YMCA, which is a free program for adult cancer survivors and comes with a courtesy membership for the 12 weeks of the program. Part of the Y’s commitment to strengthening community through healthy living, the program offers adults affected by cancer a safe, supportive environment to participate in physical and social activities focused on strengthening the whole person.
