4th Annual Hosting of the Deer Lake 5K to be:
April 27, 2014, 10:00AM
We're stretching out and pulling on our running shoes in preparation for this year's running of the Deer Lake 5K. We hope to see many familiar faces return for another shot at "the hill". And we are excited about meeting new friends and getting to know new faces this year as well.
We are pleased to announce the return of Pretzel City Sports for our finish line and timing services again this year. What a great job they did last year. Not to mention taking a huge weight off of our shoulders. Phew!
Also, back again this year will be breakfast courtesy of the Deer Lake & W. Brunswick Fire Co. They will be serving some tasty food from 8AM until noon. In addition to filling our belly's they will also be helping to keep our participants safe out on the road. We couldn't do it without them. Thanks guys!
The Deer Lake 5K is an annual Fun Run/Walk held in Deer Lake, PA. Our first three yearly events were held to raise funds and awareness for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer 2-Day walk.
In this, our 4th year, we have changed our purpose to raising funds for the National MS Society's Challenge Walk. This change was predicated by the recent diagnosis of an immediate family member. We are still passionate about Breast Cancer awareness but feel a pull in this new direction this year.
The event is hosted in the borough of Deer Lake, PA. The race begins and ends on Lake Front Drive. The first event was held in June of 2011. In 2012 the event was moved to April. We hope this will be a permanent change.
Our fan base has grown since the inaugural hosting of the 5K. It is our hope that each year will bring more participants and increased community support.
A few details:
This years event will be held on Sunday April 27, 2014. Starting time is 10AM. Registration begins at 9:00AM. The 5K is held rain or shine.
