We will hold the 6th annual 5K, the "Mid-Summer Madness 5K and fun walk", on Saturday, July 22, starting at 8:30 AM, at the new Bishop McDevitt High School outside Harrisburg (2 miles north of Wal*Mart).
This year, we have a new 5K course (fewer loops), and a separate "Fun walk" of up to 4 laps around the stadium track.
Registration is either by mail (download the brochure and mail or bring it to the event) or go to Active.com. The fee for the 5K is $25 until July 8, then goes to $30. The fun walk has no fee, just a donation of any amount. (A donation of $25 will earn a 5K t-shirt).
