At the start /finish, Giant Eagle will have beverages for participants. There will also be SMILEY cookies from EAT N PARK, and other foods for race participants. There will also be a basket raffle during the event.
This has become such a fun family event. We now have very young children running the 5K with their parents. The event attracts re-enactors from Fort Ligonier. Some re-enactors run in full gear carrying muskets! The Valley Youth Network, police, fireman, EMTs, and community volunteers will be on hand to help with the event.
