WE ARE BACK!!!  After having to forgo our last two 5K for Aidan J. events due to the pandemic, we are ECSTATIC to be able to host our flagship event in Kerr Park-- Aidan's childhood playground-- and on the Struble Trail in Downingtown.   We are so excited to bring so many kids, teens, families and community supporters together at long last.  This year-- the year that Aidan would be graduating high school-- is going to be an incredible and special event.  

Early Registration is NOW OPEN and includes a FREE T-SHIRT with each registration.  Early registration ends at 11:59PM on April 30th.

  • Regular registration begins May 1st.  T-shirts will be available for purchase with registrations from May 1st through June 1st. 
  • T-shirts will not be available for purchase with registration after June 1st.  Some T-shirts may be available on race day, but not guaranteed.
  • Race day registration prices are each an additional $5 per participant.

Please consider creating a team or creating your own fundraising page.  Both are super easy to do through this website.  Building teams and reaching out to your family and friends to support your fundraising page are a force multiplier for our 5K event.  Registration prices cover our event fees; we count on donations and sponsorships to actually raise funds for our foundation's programming.

Regular Registration Fees:

  • 5K = $25
  • 1 Mile Walk = $15
  • Kids Races (ages 2012) = $10

Event Schedule:

  • 8:00 am     Check-in and Race Day Registration opens
  • 8:45 am     Opening Ceremony
  • 9:15 am     5K start
  • 9:20 am     1 Mile Family Walk starts
  • 10:15 am   Kids Races begin (ages 2-12)
  • 10:40am    Raffle and Silent Auction close
  • 10:45 am   Closing Ceremonies

This year, the raffle will be ongoing-- no need to wait until Closing Ceremonies to find out if you won!

Note about Kids' Races:

  • You will not see an option to register your kid(s) for the Kids Races until you register yourself for either the 5K Run or the 1 Mile Walk.  Once your registration information is entered, you will then be able to "Add Registrant", and a check-box menu will allow you to select the event(s) that your child(ren) would like to participate in.  Each child's registration fee is $10, regardless whether they participate in the 5K, the Walk, the Kids Races, or any two of these events.

The 5K races will again be chip-timed, and all runners and 1 mile walkers will receive bibs.  Bryn Mawr Race Management will be providing chip-timing services for runners.  Runner results will be posted immediately on a flat-screen and online.  All registered runners may participate in the family walk and/or the kids races.

Please, no dogs for any event.  Strollers are permitted for 1 Mile Family Walk but not for the 5K Run due to limited space on the trail.

We'll see you on June 18th!!!  If you can't make it, but can help us out by making a monetary or in-kind raffle donation, we would be grateful for your support!!!  Make your donation by clicking on "Donate".
