About This Activity

The primary purpose of this event is to promote cardiovascular fitness in a safe, relaxed and friendly environment. Many individuals will run/walk a distance beyond that they have previously achieved or set a personal goal that is meaningful to them. It is a personal thing and not a competition with other participants. There are no trophies or prize money to be handed out but we do offer the option to purchase a commemorative plaque that is personalized with your name and accomplishment (miles).

This event was started 30+ years ago by some of the founding fathers of the Erie Runners Club to test the endurance of some of the local runners. It still stands today as a personal test of ones endurance whether it be running or walking or any combination thereof because of the tireless efforts of Rick Ferko and his long time volunteers. Rick's battle with cancer ended shortly after the 2006 Endurance Run.

Rick's commitment to Social Work and the local community impacted many lives and charitable causes.
