About This Activity

Join us for the 32nd Annual Run Around the Square!   The first 3/4 miles of the 5K course go  through Regent Square streets with plenty of friendly cheers and live music.  The second 2 1/2 miles go through the beautiful Frick Park trails.   The 1.5 mile Run/Walk goes through streets of Regent Square.  Both courses are USATF sanctioned.


The purpose of Run Around The Square is to organize an annual charity event that raises money collected to maintain, promote and advance the betterment of the Regent Square community.  Run Around the Square is staffed and run entirely by volunteers.  The charities supported have included – but are not limited to – the Wilkins School Community Center, the Frick Environmental Center, Regent Square Civic Association, and the Environmental Charter School.
