Be a part of a community favorite that is celebrating its 8th year! Join us on Saturday July 17th at 8:00 AM for the 8th annual APC Summer Soaker 5k Run/Walk. We encourage those who have been vaccinated (and any child under 12 if accompanied by vaccinated parent/guardian) to take on a challenging course lined with super soakers and cooling hoses before you finish with a refreshing shower from a fire truck! If you do not feel comfortable running in-person, or are not vaccinated, we welcome you to run virtually anytime from July 11-17 and email results to apc5krun@gmail.com. There is no race-day registration as we try to limit folks standing around. Come out to get back to running a race, or just to support a great event and cause. Super soft race T-shirts that always draw rave reviews will be guaranteed only to those that register before July 3, but will be available beyond that until supplies are exhausted.
Prize money ($100, $50 and $25 apiece) to the top 3 male and female finishers. Door prizes will be presented with bibs and T-shirts at bib pick-up.
Cost: 18-and-under $20. Adults: $30 for Run/Walk. Overflow Parking Lot is Abington Junior High/Campus
Rain or Shine: No Refunds for weather. If you have COVID symptoms or have been exposed to anyone with COVID in the 10 days leading up to the race, we ask that you not participate in-person and we will give you a half-refund (you can still receive your T-shirt) if you email us at apc5krun@gmail.com by 8 a.m. 7/17/2021.
This year's proceeds will be split between a pair of worthy organizations. Play On Philly "provides intensive music education to K-12 students, who would typically lack access, as a vehicle for life skills and academic achievement." The race also annually supports the brave firefighters of our local Abington Fire Company.
If you have any difficulty signing up or any questions, please email us at apc5krun@gmail.com.
