Girard College invites our families, alumni, friends and neighbors for an evening of fun and exercise that directly benefits our student activities and programming. 

The Beyond the Wall 5K Run and Family Fun Walk is an opportunity to build community, engage new partners, and forge friendships in a family atmosphere. 

The evening will feature a 5K run, a 1 mile walk, and plenty of exciting activities. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus as we run ‘beyond the wall’ and into the community.

The Course

The Beyond the Wall 5K course begins on campus at Girard College and takes you beyond the wall on a loop around the school. Say hello to our neighbors on Ridge Ave and in Sharswood before heading back to campus. See the course map here
