It’s THE PERFECT route for an 10k & 5k…it’s beautiful, rolling and there are NO CARS!!!
Strollers are welcome…but we ask that they start towards the rear of the start.
WHY ARE WE ORGANIZING THIS EVENT: Because we want to bring folks together in a meaningful way, get friends and families OUTSIDE to enjoy our beautiful area that we live in and most importantly, to raise funds for the Wissahickon Watershed Association!
Again, Scoogie Events, Doylestown Township and The Market at DelVal are holding nothing back and pulling out all of the stops to make sure that this event of it’s kind will truly be one for the memory books…(Even the big man himself is flying in for this event…It really doesn’t get any bigger than that!!!)
Having the beautiful & Market at DelVal, Doylestown Township and the new US 202 Parkway play host to this event is a dream come true.
This is a THE perfect location to host an event like this and the US 202 Parkway is THE perfect run course. And, the DelVal University cross country trails are THE PERFECT location for the BRAND NEW DIRTY TURKEY TRAIL RUNS! The combination of these factors and the fact that Scoogie Events is bringing this race to you and will see to it that all runners needs and desires are met, means that this race is surely not to be missed.
AWARDS: "You ask for it…..we deliver": From now on, ALL Scoogie events age group awards will be in FIVE YEAR age increments!! Awesome awards for age groups in both the 8k & 5k runs! Awards given for 10K & 5k only (FOR BOTH RAOD & TRAIL RUNS!), the kids’ Run & walk are both just for FUN!

NOTE: Again, no mailing of awards or shirts. If you have to leave the race early for ANY reason, you must notify us to save your award. If you do not, we cannot hold/store awards and it will likely be given to a race day entry or someone else. It is simply too much to hold/store & inventory the awards or shirts.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING THE TRAIL RUNS: If we should experience rain or snow in the days leading up to this event, or, should experience trail damage for any reason whatsoever, we reserve the right to cancel the trail runs. This is for two reasons: Number one, is for the safety of the runners. And number two, we do not want to damage the trails for future events.
Should this happen, there will be absolutely no refunds given, all runners registered for the trail run will be transferred to the same distance on the road.
Note: If you are registered for this race and you registered in time to choose a TECH 1/4 zip size BUT you are unable to run for whatever reason, you will NEED TO CONTACT us BEFORE RACE DAY and let us know if you’d like us to hold on to your reserved giveaway (TECH 1/4 zip) for you to pick up at a future Scoogie Event. If you do not do this, we cannot hold your 1/4 zip and it will be given to someone that registered after the deadline. We cannot mail shirts.
