About This Activity

The 3rd Annual Allentown 5K Fitness Challenge is now Allentown Goes Red 5K and Fitness Festival. We have moved up the date to September (27th) to coincide with Blood Cancer Awareness month. The 5K course is within Allentown's Cedar Beach Park and Rose Garden and is run mostly on a flat, paved path - 2 loops. For those seeking a full body workout, we have the #1 Lehigh Valley Boot Camp Authority, Full Circle Training, offering a one hour boot camp at 10am. The "Go Red Challenge" is offered for the  athlete who is seeking the ultimate challenge - run the 5K at 9am and complete the 10am Boot Camp. All of this in a family friendly festival atmosphere with music, silent auction, Food vendors and the Allentown Brew Works samples of their finest brews.   

The Allentown Goes Red Event is Hosted by the Allentown Parks and Recreation Department in Coordination with Full Circle Training. All Proceeds Benefit the Lehigh Valley Chapter Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Post Race Food by Bob's BBQ, and Beverages, Entertainment and many Great Raffle Prizes in a festive family friendly park environment.
