    Question 8k foot race?

    I noticed that there are two chairpersons for something called an 8k foot race. Is there a running race at the rally? I cannot find any information on it anywhere.



    Does anyone know? I have sent an e-mail message to one of the chairpersons. Awaiting a response and thought I'd ask here in the forum, too.

    Neat runs:)

    I've done some in my past, but have less running in my older years. Joint issues. Maybe they'll have a 5K fast walk too, more my speed now. Best regards to all ya runners in the 8K, a nice time had. Randy

    Thanks for this info. Having an event to train for gives me more incentive to keep on the wagon. Otherwise, it's always too easy to skip a workout now and then. I'll bring my running shoes to the rally.

    I don't know the planned route but south of the rally grounds there is a nice road that runs along Fishing Creek to the Susquehanna River then you can come north along the river that features community parks, a bicycle trail then you can return on Railroad or Market Streets back to the rally site.

    Thumbs up Reply from foot race chairman

    John replied to my e-mail message:

    The race takes place Saturday morning with everyone gathering around 6:30 to sign up if they missed the runners meeting. Race starts at 7am & usually takes place on or near the grounds. We haven't seen the site yet so the actual course hasn't been set but we will have info at the runner's meeting which starts at 5:15PM Friday in Freedom Hall.

    Along with the 8k foot race there will be a Fun Run/Walk which is typically half the distance. We are also looking for volunteers to help out Saturday morning. Anyone interested in running/walking/volunteering should try to make the Runner's Meeting on Friday.

    Looking good!

    Train hard, I hear the over 50 group is the most competitive.

    The schedule shows the runners meeting (sign up) on Friday evening at 5:15 - 6 PM at Freedom Hall.

    The run is at 07:00 Saturday...as you may well know.

    I guess I should get out on the road right now to train a little more.

    We'll be on the Gettysburg tour on Friday so probably won't be able to attend the meeting on Friday night. As I understand we can show up at 6:30 am Saturday morning and can sign up for the run????
    Thanks

    Race results

    I really wanted to run the 8K foot race, but it was too hot.

    What were the results?
