What should I bring?
You should bring comfortable walking or running clothes, sneakers, some money if you wish to purchase from our bake sale afterwards and a stop watch if you’d like to time yourself!
Are there restrooms along the trail?
There will be portable toilets at the beginning & end of the trail, as well as at the White Cliffs (just over halfway through the course).
How can I promote my business?
Contact [email protected] or Ashley Jensen at 215-584-1156 to set up a sponsorship arrangement. We would LOVE to have you support our fire company and help promote your company!
Can my child or I ride a bicycle?
We prefer only children 5 & under to have a bicycle. We don’t want too much traffic on the path & the older kids can sure ride fast! Strollers & wagons are acceptable- but keep in mind the van ride back!
Is the course wheel-chair accessible?
Transportation (vans) is not wheel-chair accessible, however the course is mostly paved and would be comfortable for wheel chairs. As of now, there is a small portion of the course that is gravel.
What time will the event end?
We can’t guarantee what time the event will end, as it depends if you’re walking, jogging, or running! The course is 4 miles. It may take runners around a half hour, joggers around 45 minutes and walkers possibly an hour and a half. It could also depend if you plan to stop on the trail around Shocks Mill bridge or the White Cliff’s at the old Billmeyer quarry operations!
I can’t walk or run but I want to help!
Thats a shame! But we have plenty for you to do! Volunteers are needed for all types of jobs, like registering participants on the day of the race, handing out water at water stations, keeping an eye on portions of the trail or even taking pictures! If you’re interested in helping, you can sign up through the webiste under the "Volunteer" tab or contact us through the Contact form!
I’m unavailable that day, how can I donate?
We’ll sure miss you! But along the top you can hit the "Donate" tab to help contribute to the fire company! We would surely apprecaite it!
If you would like to help distribute the flyer please see the attached document! We would LOVE the support of anyone and everyone to help get the word out! Think of places you visit often that might have a community board!
