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 list of race events taking place this year and we'll update it as more dates become final. 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!

Wait! It's not all about competition. The Hershey Harrisburg Region is full of places to walk, run, bike and relax without pinning on a race bib. Stroll through the green spaces at Wildwood Park or Ned Smith Center. Hike the Appalachian Trail or the trails through Little Buffalo State Park. Harrisburg's riverfront has some epic sunrises and sunsets that will get you in the "get moving" spirit too!
