About This Activity

The all-terrain course includes:  pavement, rolling grass surfaces, grassy trail, a gradual hill near the finish, and a cinder track. The location and date of the race are new this year due to the construction project at Boyertown Area Senior High. Other events include: a 1 mile walk, and a FREE kids fun run on on the cinder track.

Awards will be given to the Overall Male and Female runners as well as 1st - 3rd in each age group for both Male and Female.
