24th Annual Ruthie Dino-Marshall 5K

uthie spent her entire life in the Middletown area and was an active part of the community. She worked with the Middletown School District, as well as here, at the YMCA of Middletown. She was truly an integral part of our association. Her classes were well received and her benevolent nature always had her involved in an array of “Y” activities. An avid runner, Ruthie was symbolic of our mission. Her dedication to building healthy Spirit, Mind and Body was exemplified in all she did. Ruthie conveyed this enthusiasm for life, to all who knew her. Because of this, it seemed a proper tribute to rededicate our road race to Ruthie’s memory. This event raises money each year for the children of our community. The funds raised benefit the Middletown School District Ruthie Dino-Marshall Memorial Fund and the YMCA of Middletown summer camp scholarship fund. 2021 SPECIAL NOTES: (UPDATED 6/11/21) Registration is open through Saturday.

This was a real run race.  The course was VERY hilly at points, so really had to muscle through a bit.  It was a little chaotic before the start as it was not clear where we were starting from, but once the time came all was good.
