Coasters, characters, the capital and...CARDIO!

Run with us! Walk with us! Dress up and be "color"-ful with us! From serious runners and weekend warriors to first-timers and walkers, every level of athlete can appreciate the beautiful Hershey Harrisburg scenery (time checks at coasters and riverfront finish lines!) and sense of community and cause that comes with a well-organized race event.

We've put together a long list of races taking place this year. Plan a visit around the race, or plan the race around the visit. Most events feature Walks and Fun Runs for the younger troops or non-runners in the family. Plus, pre and post-race events are planned to celebrate runners' accomplishments and highlight worthy charities. So pick a weekend and pick a pace. Start stretching and we'll see you soon!

UPDATE 9.30.15  --  Fall racing is beautiful racing! Check out our list of the region's top Run/Walk/Bike events and register while there are still spots available.
