About This Activity

On Sunday, October 18, 2015 the James J. and Mary Edith Rhoades Foundation will proudly host the 6th Annual Rhoades Race 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk

After the great success of the 5th Anual Rhoades Race last year where approximately 200+ runners and their families turned out, we are thrilled to be working to make this year’s race even better! Local runner and community volunteer Joe Muldowney is serving as Race Director and has planned what will be a great race day! The course will begin near the new Yuengling brewery on the Saint Clair Industrial Road and is a fast, flat out-and-back course that will be enticing to both experienced runners and newcomers alike. 

The Rhoades Foundation honors the memory of Senator James J. Rhoades and aims to provide community opportunities for both children and adults with the focus of promoting education, giving, and community involvement. 

Our goal for this race is to encourage community members and families to get together and run for a good cause! The proceeds of the race will go toward scholarships to our area’s high school seniors.
