Event Description


DICK’S House of Sport is hosting their first annual Summer Kick off 5K and Walk at Nay Aug Park in Scranton!


Runners and walkers of all ages are welcome to this new community event. This is not just a race but a community vendor fair where all participants and families can see their favorite local businesses at the park! 

There will be a “cool down” area provided for all runners and walkers and hydration stations throughout the racecourse. Kiddos will have their own “activity” area for them to have fun and enjoy. Mascots from your favorite local sports team will be in appearance, and so much more! 


The race begins at 9:00 AM on Saturday, June 1, 2024, at Nay Aug Park in Scranton. The vendor fair will conclude at 1:00 PM. 


DICK’S House of Sport will host a Race Expo Party on May 31, 2024, from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM at DICK’S House of Sport where vendors and sponsors will be featured. All runners and walkers will be able to pick up their race packet which includes their t-shirt, bib, medal, race info and a few other surprises! 


Participants who register by April 30th are guaranteed a shirt. 


Race proceeds benefit the DICK’S Sporting Goods Sports Matter foundation, a non-profit corporation with a mission to inspire and enable sports participation. 



We believe that sports change lives. In addition to physical and mental health benefits, sports have the power to change our perspectives, our character, and our communities for the better. This belief has guided DICK’S Sporting Goods and The DICK’S Sporting Goods Foundation since the beginning – but not everyone has the same access to play. Through grants and other support, The DICK’S Foundation helps under-resourced 501c3 organizations, schools, and community teams across all 50 states provide opportunities for youth to play sports.


More information about the Sports Matter foundation can be found here: https://www.sportsmatter.org/.
