About This Activity

The annual NAMI Lehigh Valley 5K Run for Mental Illness Awareness will occur at Bicentennial Park in Bethlehem, PA on Saturday., Sept. 17, 2016.

The 5K run is on flat paved roads in a suburban area. Warning: there is LIVE TRAFFIC!  Prizes for first place female and male runners and for top runners in each age bracket, female and male. Participants receive T-shirts and tickets for a basket raffle. There is food before and after the event, live music, a playground and grassy area for children, and restrooms. No strollers, bikes, or runners under age 14. Race day registration is available, but online pre-registration is preferred.  If you wish for your registration fee to benefit the Vivek Ananthan Youth Initiative, please state this in a note to the Race Director using the "Race Contact Info"  button.  Registration fees and donations stay in the Lehigh Valley to improve the quality of life for people affected by mental illness through education, support, and advocacy. Visit for more information about NAMI Lehigh Valey.

Walkers have a separate, shorter course on a section of the Nor-Bath rail/trail. The walk, which begins at 9:20, is not a race. The walk is free; donations accepted! Walkers register online this year. 

T-shirts and tickets for the basket raffle are available to both walkers and runners. To ensure a T-shirt, register early!
