Come join Boy Scout Troop 542 a fun morning of exercise and breakfast. Enjoy a challenging and fun 5.42K run or walk/hike through the beautiful trails of Fort Washington State Park and along the Wissahickon Creek Green Ribbon Trial. The trail follows the scenic river over the old Reading Rail road bridge (now a walking bridge – part of trail) to historic Militia Hill and back. The course consists of well-marked dirt and asphalt trails in shaded, wooded areas of the State Park. A great time of year for this run with the leaves turning and a chill in the air! All runners and hikers/walkers will receive a pancake breakfast at the end of the race. The first 100 registered participants will receive our traditional Fall Trail Run "tec" race shirt. 5K run will award prizes to top overall male/female race finishers and overall age group winners in following brackets: Ages 1-12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+. All proceeds from this race go towards Boy Scout Troop 542 in Maple Glen, PA. It is the mission of the Boy Scouts of America - and Troop 542 - to serve others by helping to instill values in young people and, in other ways, to prepare them to make ethical choices during their lifetime in achieving their full potential. The values we strive to instill are based on those found in the Scout Oath and Law. Please join us for a fun event in support of Boy Scouts and Troop 542. For those wishing to just sign up for the pancake breakfast (not participating in the run or walk), please go to www.troop542.com/pancakes to register.
