24th Annual DYC River Run – Sunday, July 24, 2022


We are excited to announce this year’s River Race and we’re looking forward to seeing all our racing friends again! Join us on Sunday, July 24th for the annual Delaware Youth Center River Race. Register for the 5K run or walk; or for a greater challenge, try the 10K distance! T-Shirts for the first 400 participants, so register early! Can’t attend this year but still want to join in the fun? Register for the Gary A. Winglovitz Virtual Run! No matter what race you choose, all proceeds benefit the Delaware Youth Center.

Here’s what’s going on:

  • The 5K Run and Walk will be in person this year on the beautiful River Road in Callicoon
  • The 10K Run is back on this year!
  • Walkers race steps off at 8:15. Both 5K and 10K runners start at 8:30.
  • Not sure you’re ready for an in-person race or can’t make it on race day? You can still participate in the Annual Gary A. Winglovitz Virtual Race.

All proceeds benefit the Delaware Youth Center.



The Delaware Youth Center River Run is one of the largest and most vital fundraisers for our facility. This funding allows us to operate the facility and keep the Youth Center open for another generation of Callicoon-area kids.

Please review the website for all your race information. If you need more information, email Ann Santoro, the race director, at or call 845-887-4887.

We would like to thank all our sponsors and participants! We are humbled and grateful for all the support.

And a very special thank you to the entire Winglovitz team and family for their huge outpouring of support in memory of Gary Winglovitz. We greatly appreciate all you have done to honor Gary’s memory and to support the DYC!

Gary A. Winglovitz

The Gary A. Winglovitz Virtual Race began in 2019, named for one of our own: Gary Winglovitz, a kid who grew up in Cochecton and spent his childhood at the Delaware Youth Center. Gary died in 2014 at 41, and his family and friends have come out in force ever since to run the River Race in his memory.

Here’s how the virtual race works:

  • Choose your distance and choose your course
  • Run or walk anytime between July 17 and August 1
  • Share photos of your virtual run, and tag the Delaware Youth Center on social media
  • Support the Delaware Youth Center from anywhere in the world!
  • Packet pick up days will be announced
  • Want your packet mailed? Please add $5 donation to your registration to cover the cost.
  • Want to record your time? You’ll receive an email about a week before the race with instructions, and a link to the results page to see how you placed. Don’t want to upload your time? That’s fine too!

In the past we’ve had participants as far away as Lima, Peru and Sydney, Australia in our virtual race. This year, we hope to see you join us from wherever you are!
