Helen Kate Furness Library and Swarthmore Library invite you to our first 5K Walk/Run to celebrate our libraries and communities. Registration will be open at 8AM on race day, Saturday, April 1st. The point to point course starts at Wallingford train station (a short walk from Helen Kate Furness library) at 9AM and ends at Swarthmore Library. There will activities for families at Central Park in Swarthmore including face painting, music by Allison DeSalvo, and an awards ceremony. This is a fun event for the whole family! The first 125 5K walkers and runners to register are guaranteed a t-shirt! ALL registered RUNNERS and WALKERS will be entered into a drawing to win a Complimentary One Night Stay (including Breakfast for two) at the Inn At Swarthmore AND a $100 Gift Certificate to the Broad Table Tavern! There is a SEPTA train leaving Swarthmore station 8:01AM getting to Wallingford station at 8:03AM, in case you want to leave your car in Swarthmore and get to the starting line via public transportation! And we need volunteers! Our first 50 volunteers will receive an awesome pink water bottle from Tupperware - easy to hold with a straw, too. If you do sign up to volunteer, please don't include a t-shirt size because you will be getting the water bottle instead. Thank you for helping support our local libraries!
