Thank you so much for your interest in our road race! We have been hosting this event for a few years now so that we may raise money for worthy causes and town events. Each year we have been getting more and more registrants and we thank you all! Really, we only facilitate this event but its people like you who make it happen and make it a success. With your help we have been able to raise money for many worthy local causes.
This year we will be raising money to increase awareness of Melanoma in the name of Dan Farquharson. Dan and his wife, Gina (Mini) Farquharson, both grew up here in Abington. Dan recently succumbed to his battle with Melanoma and now Gina returns to Abington to raise money for this worthy cause. Dan was an avid runner who participated in many road races so it is only fitting for us to run this race in his name and increase awareness in the dangers of unprotected exposure to the sun’s rays.
The race will be held rain or shine on May 16th, 2015. There is a FREE .6 mile children’s fun run starting at 8:30 a.m. and a 5K race starting at 9:00 a.m. You must be 8 years old or younger to enter the children’s run. You can enter your child during number pick-up or on the morning of the race (I suggest during number pick-up the night before to limit lines on the day of the event)
We will be giving each child that finishes the fun run a medal and we will have awards for the 5K in many age divisions.
We will also host a team competition in the 5K race. For more information on entering as team go to the TEAM COMPETITION FAQ Page

|We have strived to make this race affordable at $15 per entry, plus a small registration fee. We have not raised the prices since its inception and in fact we now offer discounts to some groups. This race is one of the cheapest races to register for and you still get a professionally organized, fun race with plenty of awards and t-shirts to the first registered.
