Wherever you choose to be

Please join us in our first virtual On Your Marc 5k Run/Walk in memory of Staff Sgt. Marc J. Small and to support Small Steps in Speech.

About: On Your Marc 5K Run/Walk celebrates the life of SSG Marc J. Small, a Collegeville, PA (suburb of Philadelphia) resident killed in action in 2009 while serving as a Special Forces Medic in Afghanistan. The event benefits Small Steps in Speech, a nonprofit bearing Marc's last name, started by Marc's fiancee Amanda Charney-Berardi, which assists children with communicative disorders. 

When: Aug 1st - 2nd (On Your Marc is traditionally held the first weekend in August to celebrate Marc's August 4th birthday). Run your 5k with family, friends, fur-babies, neighborhood run group, crossfit gym, teammates, and so on anytime between August 1st and August 2nd (you have 48 hours to support a great cause and honor our hero!!!)

How: Not familiar with the world of virtual racing, no worries. Find a nice 5k loop, out-back route, trail, treadmill, or grab your family and friends to run or walk a one mile loop in your neighborhood 3 times. We suggest using Strava, Map my run, RunKeeper, Nike + Run Club, or any other app you may use to track your fitness to accurately map out your route.  Record your race result by responding to an automated text that will be sent out Aug 1st or by uploading your time at our race sign up page, under results. Should you have any questions at all please reach out to Race Director Mary MacFarland at mary@smallstepsinspeech.org or Shawn Wherry at st.wherry@gmail.com.

Where: This is a virtual race, so have fun, be creative, and enjoy completing the race wherever you are located. Should you find yourself in/near Eagleville, PA, the original On Your Marc route is uploaded below. (Please be cognizant of Lower Providence Township's messaging on social gatherings at the time of the race day and that the first leg on Ridge Pike is on a busy road with minimal shoulder). Upload your race-day photos with your On Your Marc gear from this race or previous races to the On Your Marc Facebook page and tag your location and build camaraderie with your fellow racers! 

Prizes: Top overall female and male times will receive free entry into next years On Your Marc 5k Run (race results will be announced by Aug 4th)

Early bird registration: 6/1 - 6/30 = $30.00 per person
