About This Event
Come out and run or walk to support the Greater Glenside Patriotic Association 4th of July celebration! Our parade has been a community tradition for over 100 years. We need your help to keep our cherished parade and beautiful fireworks display a part of the Greater Glenside area for generations to come. All proceeds from your participation in "Keep the Parade Running" will ensure the continuation of this time honored Glenside 4th of July event. See you there!

Both the run and walk will start and finish at the North Penn VFW Post 676 of Glenside, located at 2519 Jenkintown Road, Glenside, PA. The run will take two loops through the scenic streets of Glenside. A few rolling hills throughout the course will provide just enough of a challenge to satisfy any level of runner.

Team Registration
We will once again be offering team registrations. Teams may consist of any combination of runners/walkers, but must contain at least 5 members.  This year, we will be holding a competition for the largest team, with a special prize being offered to all members of the largest team.

Medals for the top 3 overall male & female runners. Age group award medals (top male & female) will also be presented.

Those who register early enough receive a “Keep the Parade Running” long sleeve t-shirt. There will be live music during the race, refreshments for finishers, indoor toilet facilities, ample parking, time clock at finish, instant results (provided by Bryn Mawr Racing Co.) and awards presented following the run. Awards will not be mailed. Additionally, the VFW bar and restaurant will be open for you and your family to celebrate your successful run. This event will be held rain or shine. No refunds.
