In the Montgomeryville area, fall isn’t just about pumpkin patches and seasonally flavored lattes. It’s also about the fun-filled, family-friendly races. Just take a look at the Firkin 5K and 1 Mile Walk! It’s fun for the entire family, and it’s an incredible way for everyone to celebrate the fall season.
So, what can locals expect from this race? Check out your guide to the Firkin 5K below to find out.
Firkin 5K: When & Where?
The Firkin 5K will take place on Saturday, October 14th at 10 AM. The course kicks off at Whites Road Park and runs through the entire park, as well as the neighborhood streets in Lansdale, PA.
While the 5K race is pretty exciting, it’s not the only attraction at this event. If you want to partake in something that’s just as fun but a little less intense, sign up for the 1 Mile Walk. Like the 5K run, the walk will take you through the beautifully quiet neighborhood streets of Lansdale and end at the park.
Interested in participating in either one of these events? You can be a part of the 5K or the 1 Mile Walk when you sign up today! Plus, make sure you get to the races early because registration starts at 8:45 AM.
5K Perks & Awards
Cheer on the community as they cross the finish line, but know: There’s nothing like crossing it yourself. And to top it off, all runners will receive a few great perks for their participation. All runners will receive a swag bag, and if you’re one of the first 200 people to register, you’ll also get a free t-shirt.
Plus, if you’re 21 years of age or older, you’ll get a token as soon as you cross the finish line for a free beer at Lansdale’s Oktoberfest, which takes place in the park after the race ends.
Best of all, awards will be given out for the top three finishers for males and females, as well as the top finishers in the following age groups:
- Under 18
- 19 to 24
- 25 to 29
- 30 to 39
- 40 to 49
- 50 to 59
- 60 and up
Each gold, silver, and bronze medal presented to the race’s winners is made by children with disabilities at the Varsity Club Camp.
