Take your classical music “in stride” and come out again to support the Kennett Symphony and see if you can BEAT BEETHOVEN!!  This is a fun race for serious runners as well as beginners and families. The race will start with the downbbeat of Beethoven's 5th Symphony (DAH, DAH, DAH DAH!!).  The objective is to finish the 5K before the Symphony finishes playing (about 32 minutes).  Beethoven himself runs the race every year and always has finished  with time to spare!!

Prizes are awarded for the overall winner as well as male and female winners in age categories.

Come out, join the fun and support the KENNETT SYMPHONY which has been bringing symphonic music to Chester County for over 75 years.
