Come brave the winds of early April and the rolling hills of Southern Chester County!  Both 5K and 10K courses are run on the rolling hills of Southern Chester County.  Both courses start and finish on the Octorara Area School District campus (final 200 meters of each race on the newly-renovated high school track).  Runners feeling “brave” enough may run both the 5K and 10K for no additional cost.  This has been a very popular option in previous years.  Members of the Octorara High School track & field team are positioned all throughout both courses providing direction and enthusiastic encouragement. 

Register before midnight on 3/18/17 to receive discounted registration rate, and to be guaranteed a race t-shirt.  $25 Gift certificate to Downingtown Running Company and unique trophy will be awarded to top overall male and female in both the 5K and 10K.  Age group awards for both races in following categories: 14 & under, 15-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60 & over.  Awards ceremony for both races will be held immediately after finish of 5K.  Post-race food and refreshments provided for all runners.

All proceeds raised from this event directly benefit the Octorara High School cross country and track & field teams.
