Each year 2,500 runners gather from all over the Memphis community and beyond to participate in Cooper-Young Festival 4-Miler, an evening race which supports the Cooper-Young Community Association. Our runners always love the welcoming atmosphere of the neighborhood, and they get a special kick out of the great Light the Way parties the neighbors host to cheer them on.

If you’re looking to get in on the action this year, be sure to give our office a shout at the office and register your party. Everyone who calls (901-272-2922) or emails (info@cooperyoung.org) us about their party will receive one free race entry so you can cheer on that special runner. Plus, you will be entered into our annual Light the Way competition for best party! So don’t be shy! There are some great prizes for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, so be sure to sign up today! If you are looking to run or sponsor, visit our website at https://cooperyoung4miler.racesonline.com. The run is on September 14 at 7 p.m. And don’t forget to stay for the afterparty!
