This will be our 4th year for this event!
Running Over Addiction is held to raise funds and awareness for the West Branch Drug & Alcohol Abuse Commission, which provides services to those who live in Lycoming & Clinton counties. The Commission provides valuable prevention services as well as treatment to those who are fighting addiction.
Location: South Williamsport Park Complex, 545 E. Central Ave., South Williamsport PA 17702.
10K will begin at 9:00 AM
5K and 1 Mile Walk will begin at 9:15 AM
Registration/Check-In will be held from 7:00 AM – 9:00 AM on race morning.
Awards will be given to the Overall Top Male & Female in the 5K and 10K. We will also have awards for the top 3 Male & Female (5K & 10K) in each of the following age categories: 12 & Under, 13-15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 & Over.
The 1 Mile walk will not be timed and will not have any awards
Many of the organizations in our community that provide services related to addiction and recovery will have tables set up at the park before and during the race. Please take time to learn about these valuable resources.
*Children age 10 & Under participating in the 5K or 1 Mile Walk can register for FREE. No shirt is included with the FREE registration. All participants must complete the registration process, but no fee will be charged.*
Participants that register on or by 8/25/19 will be guaranteed a shirt with their registration fee. Participants that register after this date will receive a shirt on a first-come basis on race day. We do our best to order enough shirts for all participants, but we cannot guarantee a shirt for those who register after 8/25/19.
As you may have noticed, we have decided NOT to offer the Half Marathon event this year. Our intention is to bring back that distance in 2020 and offer the Half Marathon every other year, and these three distances (5k, 10k and 1 Mile Walk) on the opposite years. We know many participants are disappointed to hear this, but due to personal commitments, it just isn’t possible for our Volunteer Race Director this year. We hope you understand and continue to support our event!
