Get an early start to Pennridge Community Day by running the "988 Run Out of the Darkness 5K/10K", benefitting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP). The AFSP is a voluntary health organization that gives those affected by suicide a nationwide community empowered by research, education, and advocacy to take action against this leading cause of death.
Organized by the Perkasie Rotary Club, the race starts and finishes at Free Will Brewing Company in Perkasie. Walkers are welcome but asked to limit participation to the 5K.
The course uses roads in town, heading into lightly travelled neighborhoods. Both races run together for the first mile and runners are free to change their distance "on the fly".
Participants can choose to receive a quality short-sleeved tech shirt or a discounted registration for no shirt. In addition to generous awards, including 80+, all registrants over the age of 21 will receive a coupon for a free beer at Free Will.
Event details and schedule
Registration opens at 7:00 AM. Awards immediately following each race.
Parking can be found on both sides of the the Free Will Brewery, the back of the building, and the street. If all spaces are full, you will spot a hill on the back corner of Eric & Christopher's (the left back side of the building if you're facing the front). Feel free to drive over that hill and into the overflow lot.
