Joseph L Manghan, IV was a talented Pennsauken grad who fought a long, hard fight to annihilate Ewing's Sarcoma. He was 23 years old when he passed in 2018. Joe's Run is dedicated to his fond memory, and is a fun, scenic race which will raise scholarship money for a deserving Pennsauken Graphic Arts student.

Awards in the 5k for Overall Male and Female, plus 1st place medals for male and female in under 12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+.

*By request, there will be a race day option to walk. The walk will be about 1.3 miles long, and will turn left when hitting the pavement AFTER going around Bullfrog Pond. You can see the map below to see where that turn will be.

Course Map

The course starts and finishes at the Palmyra Nature Cove Welcome Center. This 5k course covers mixed surfaces, including gravel, grass and dirt trails, and some pavement. It is similar to that of a cross country course. In fact, the Cove is where Pennsauken High School hosts its home cross country races. The start and finish run on the main Cove Trail, parallel to the Delaware River. Other highlights include loops past Bullfrog Pond and Beaver Pond. You are sure to spot some wildlife during the race, such as deer and turkeys.

The 1st mile (red line) goes out on the Cove trail, with the Delaware River on your right. It loops around the Dredge Retention Basin (aka "The Square") and comes back toward the start. The 2nd mile (blue line) loops around Bullfrog Pond, and then heads out on the only stretch of pavement on the course, and eventually picks up the Perimeter Trail. The 3rd mile  (black line) continues on the Perimeter Trail, past Beaver Pond, until you make the final right turn onto the Cove Trail. The final half mile of the course follows the Cove Trail (now with the Delaware River on your left) all the way back to the Welcome Center.
