All ages are invited to Run or Walk in the Candy Cane 5K, our annual winter fundraiser. All proceeds and donations go to help support the work of FCA ( Fellowship of Christian Athletes) LOCATION: The Park at 4th ( Univest Performance Center), Quakertown, PA **** COVID-19 UPDATE**** This year’s Candy Cane 5K will be held in the city of Quakertown due to the permits not being issued in Bethlehem. We have worked hard to find a great location for our runners to have a live event. We are happy to have found this location, which has an excellent 5K path that runs through the Park at 4th. This will be a live event; we will only offer our Candy Cane 5K this year due to course limitations. All waves of the Candy Cane 5K Registration will be open to both 5K runners and walkers; we will be limiting each wave to 150 people to allow for adequate parking and time for one wave to come and go. We will be opening one wave at a time, with the first wave starting at 9:15; we will be adding additional waves of 150 people as needed, they will start an hour apart. This year we will not be offering registration the day of the event; registration closes Thursday, 8:00 am March 18, 2021. We will have a packet pickup on Thursday, March 18th, and Friday, March 19th. Packet pickup will be at two locations; we are working on reserving space with East Swamp Church in Quakertown for Thursday's packet pickup and reserving a space at Cedar Crest Bible Fellowship Church, Allentown, for a Friday Packet pickup. Packet pickup will be strongly encouraged; if you cannot attend packet pickup before Saturday, registration will be open for 30 minutes before each wave on Saturday, March 20th. We are so very excited to be able to host our Candy Cane 5K still! TIMES* Wave 1- 9:15 am (Packet pIck-up opens 8:30 am)-FULL Wave 2-10:15 am (Packet pick-up opens 9:30 am) * additional wave times will be added as waves are available NEW VIRTUAL RUN/WALK: We will be offering a virtual Run/Walk; please make sure you pick the correct location to pick up your packets from. PLEASE NOTE, you must pick up your packets; packets will not be shipped. Packet pickup will have all people remain in their cars for a drive-thru style pickup. This will be minimizing your contact with other people, think grocery pickup style. Arrangements can be made with the race director for your bag to be held if you can't make either packet pickup. Packet pickup locations for virtual runners/walkers: Thursday, March 18th (Time not finalized yet) in QUAKERTOWN at East Swamp Church- pending reservation approvals.
