Come join us for a challenging and fun 5.42K Run and Walk/Hike through the beautiful trails of Fort Washington State Park and along the Wissahickon Creek Green Ribbon Trial. The trail follows the scenic Wissahickon Creek 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 long sleeve 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. AS OF 10/20/16 ON-LINE REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. WE WILL BE ACCEPTING WALK-UP'S ON RACE DAY STARTING AT 8AM. PLEASE BRING CHECK OR CASH TO REGISTER. RUNNERS REGISTRATION IS $35 AND HIKERS $25. THANK YOU.
