The race will be chip timed with the chip being embedded in your special Tapping of the Great Pumpkin special edition race bib and your time will start when you cross over the starting line mats...so no need to rush through the start line:-)

Scoogie Events is proud to announce that we are now teaming up and partnering with The Wissahickon Valley Water Shed Association  & Ainsley's Angels which means that a portion of the proceeds from this event will not only go to helping keep our local water ways CLEAN, but they will also help ensure that EVERYONE can experience endurance events even while in a wheelchair! :-)

In addition to the delicious food from Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar!! And also some great pizza from Jules Thin Crust Pizza and pizza & tomato pies from Tony Roni's in Spring House, there will be crafts and activities for the whole family.

This event is a not to be missed event that will sell out. We will limit the number of registered athletes to ensure safety for everyone involved. We anticipate a sell out in EARLY OCTOBER this year!
A FREE freshly brewed beer from the good folks at Ironhill Brewery & restaurant (MUST be 21+ years old), free DELICIOUS appetizers from Harvest Seasonal Grill & Wine Bar, Jules Thin Crust Pizza and Tony Roni's and entrance into the Tapping of the Great Pumpkin Festival! 
Once again...runners and walkers are encouraged to wear a costume- BUT by no means are you obligated. Plenty of runners and walkers will dress up and plenty will be wearing their normal running gear as well.

The 8k & 5k travel through English Village apartments onto Squire Lane out to Cedar Hill Road onto Biwood and back. The 8k continues onto the beautiful Horsham Power Line Trail!
This is a beautiful run that is very fast and flat, with paved streets and gentle rolling hills; a great course! Held rain or shine. Please no bikes, roller blades, or skateboards allowed on course. 

NOTE: We do not issue any refunds, transfers or credits for any reason. We have the right to revise or cancel the race due to emergency or weather issue....(but we really hope this doesn't happen:-)
