About This Activity


Scoogie Events and the good folks at the Joseph Ambler Inn cordially invite you the Third Annual Spring Fling 8k & 5k run festival on April 22nd at the historic Joseph Ambler Inn. In addition to the 8k & 5k runs, we will also have a 1/2 mile Kid's Fun Run & a 2 mile walk. The event will begin at 8:00am and the festivities will continue well afterward when EVERYONE is invited to stick around and enjoy music, a full country breakfast (limited to the first 500 registered ) and mimosas for those of age, activities for kids (including a bounceU bounce house) and of course the awards ceremony. If you would like your family and friends to join you at the full country breakfast have them sign up for the kids fun run or the 2 mile walk.

The Kid's run will begin at 7:55 sharp, the 8k at 8:10 and the 5k will begin at 8:15

Again, the US 202 Parkway will be COMPLETELY CLOSED TO TRAFFIC for this event and all runs will be on the Parkway!!! It's THE PERFECT route for a 8k &'s beautiful, rolling and there are NO CARS!!!

And...we will have plenty of folks cheering you on the whole way as well as one water stop for the 5k runners and two for the 8k runners.

Why are we holding this event? Because we want to bring folks together in a meaningful way, get friends and families OUTSIDE to enjoy our beautiful area that we live in and most importantly, to raise funds for the Kid's Foundation and the Wissahickon Watershed Association. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go directly to the Life is good Kid's Foundation as well as the Wissahickon Watershed Association.

Both Scoogie Events and The Joseph Ambler Inn are holding nothing back and pulling out all of the stops to make sure that this event of it's kind will truly be one for the memory books.

Having the beautiful & famous Joseph Ambler Inn play host to this event is a dream come true. The Inn is a perfect venue to host an event like this and the 202 Parkway is THE perfect run course. The combination of these two factors and the fact that Scoogie Events is bringing this race to you and will see to it that all runners needs and desires are met means that this race is surly not to be missed.

Click on the distance you'd like to race at the top of this page and follow the instructions or visit DQ EVENTS and search for Spring Fling.

The famous Joseph Ambler Inn will serve ALL runners a FULL COUNTRY BREAKFAST...yup..eggs, French toast casserole, bacon, potatoes, fruit, yogurt, muffins and pastries, coffee, tea & Juice. (limited to the first 500 registered, with a continental breakfast for everyone else)

AND....(drum roll.......) Mimosas for ALL the runners (of age)...mock mimosas for underage.

The Joseph Ambler Inn will also provide $20 gift cards for each 8k & 5k runner!!!

That's just a start....Just wait till you see what else we have in store for everyone!

**Important note regarding the t shirts for this event....We have partnered with what we feel are THE COOLEST, most stylish & most comfortable t shirts in the market place.

We gave these t shirts to the runners that registered BEFORE THE T SHIRT DEADLINE for Shake Your Shamrock on March 11th to a resounding & emphatic positive response!!

We are very excited for everyone that registers BEFORE THE T SHIRT DEADLINE to experience the quality & awesomeness of these t shirts......BUT, PLEASE register BEFORE THE DEADLINE or you most likely will NOT receive one of these special t shirts.

Additionally, these shirts fit differently from the 'normal' race shirt.

These shirts are FITTED. BOTH men's & women's are fitted!


* BounceU bounce house for kids (or adults that feel so inclined)
