YMCA Altoona Curve Home Run!
June 4, 2008 - Erik Brown
Will you be going for a run this weekend? Why not challenge yourself a little and join in the fun at this Saturday’s YMCA Altoona Curve Home Run Race?
The Altoona Curve has teamed up with the Hollidaysburg Area YMCA for the second annual YMCA Altoona Curve Home Run. The Altoona Curve baseball club, the AA affiliate of the Pittsburgh Pirates, has become an institution in Blair County. The Curve partnering with the YMCA will make for a great event!
The race will take place on Saturday, June 7th at 8:30 AM. This is the makeup of the second leg of the YMCA’s Community Wellness Challenge Series that features a total of eight races including a late summer triathlon at Canoe creek. This year’s race was originally scheduled to be coordinated with an Altoona Curve baseball game. That game was rained out.
