The CK5K welcomes runners and walkers of all levels and ages! This year's race/walk will take place in person on Saturday, September 23 at Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School (Address: 1345 Sumneytown Pike, Gwynedd Valley, PA 19437). Pre-race activities will begin at 8am, with the race/walk at 9am. The event will take place virtually from Saturday, September 16 through Sunday, September 24. Both in person and virtual participants will receive a CK5K t-shirt (if registered by September 1st). We encourage all participants to post their run/walk on social media using #CK5K.
The CK5K event raises funds to support the Carolyn Keen’10 Memorial Scholarship that was started in memory of Carolyn Keen ‘10 who lost her life in a car accident in her junior year. Carolyn was a member of the Cross Country and Track team so a 5K is a perfect way to celebrate her talents and contributions to the Gwynedd community and keep her memory alive. The scholarship is awarded each year to a rising Junior at Gwynedd Mercy Academy High School who, like Carolyn, has displayed admirable dedication and commitment to her school, and whose family will benefit from the assistance with her tuition.
Registration: $30 (plus processing fee). Online registration will be open through September 22 and in-person registration from 8-8:30am on September 23.
