The Liberty Fire 5K Run and Walk

Dash To The Summer Bash!

Schuylkill Haven, Pennsylvania — On Saturday, July 1st, 2017 the Liberty Fire Company #4 located in Schuylkill Haven, PA will host a 5K Run and Walk event in conjunction with the 5th Annual 2017 Summer BBQ Bash.

The professionally-timed race begins at the Liberty Fire Company #4 and travels through the borough of Schuylkill Haven — continuing onto the newly constructed, shaded walking trail around the “Island” recreational complex.

Registration and check-in begins at 8AM and the race will take place at 9AM. For those who prefer not to run, an equally enjoyable 2.5-mile walk will follow the runners beginning at 9:05AM and will also encompass the “Island” walking trail.

Since we understand the dedication and commitment it takes to work as an emergency responder, we will be offering awards to the Top 3 Emergency Responders that cross the finish line. Medals for each age group will also be awarded along with a stunning trophy featuring a fire engine that resembles our 1980 CF Mack Engine going to the top male and female finishers.

Race or walk entry fees are $25 the day of the event. Preregistration cost is $20 available online until midnight Wednesday June 28th. Registration includes a choice of t-shirt or food tickets — while supplies last.

The Liberty Fire 5K Run and walk will be held rain or shine, and fees are not refundable.  For additional information, contact the Liberty Fire Company or Race Director Aaron Schimpf at aaron@ajsweb.com or visit http://www.libertyfireco.com/liberty5k/
