Having the beautiful & Market at DelVal, Doylestown Township and the new US 202 Parkway play host to this event is a dream come true.
This is a THE perfect location to host an event like this and the US 202 Parkway is THE perfect run course. The combination of these factors and the fact that Scoogie Events is bringing this race to you and will see to it that all runners needs and desires are met, means that this race is surly not to be missed.

AWARDS: "You ask for it.....we deliver": From now on, ALL Scoogie events age group awards will be in FIVE YEAR age increments!! Awesome awards for age groups in both the 8k & 5k runs! Awards given for 10K & 5k only, Kids Run is for FUN!
