Description

________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Bring the family and join us for the Memorial Day 5k presented by Gingerbread Man Running Company!  This year the race will take place at Keystone State Park, due to restrictions at Idlewild. We plan to be back there next year though!

We are excited to announce that the Jamie Cordial Hall Foundation is going to be our race charity again this year! A portion of the proceeds of this race will go to the JCH Foundation, which assists children and others in need in the community. Visit https://www.jchfoundation.com to learn more! 

The "Race for Jamie" is a scenic 5K race that takes you through the Keystone State Park, beginning at the beach.  There is a "Cody's Dash", a toddler 100 Meter Dash that will take place right before the 5k start!

We offer races for the whole family!

NEW for 2021, we will be introducing a Rucking division.  This is an official https://goruck.com race. Learn more about it at https://www.goruck.com/rucking-101. All participants will receive a GORUCK patch and the top 3 male and female participants will get an award!

The requirements: Wear a Ruck/backpack with the standard weight-10# for participants 150 lbs. and under, and 20# for those over 150 lbs.  Your ruck will be weighed at the beginning of the race. No participants will be weighed, weight requirements are on the honor system. Most females carry 10# and most males carry 20#.  Weighted vests are NOT permitted unless you have the GORUCK Ruck Plate Carrier.  That will be accepted. You must wear a backpack with the weight on your back at all times during the race.
