Greater Allegheny 5K is back on April 21

March 13, 2012

This year's run/walk will take place at 9 a.m. on Saturday, April 21, starting at the Penn State Greater Allegheny Student Community Center and winding through Renzie Park.

Registration is $10 for students/kids and $25 for adults, which includes a cotton T-shirt and post-race goodies. New this year we are offering dri-fit T-shirts at a slightly higher registration cost.  Runner's High will be timing our event again this year. The registration deadline is March 30.

The GA5K run/walk was created to allow the students, staff, faculty and the surrounding communities to challenge themselves while serving as a contributing member of their community. All proceeds will benefit Sonshine Community Ministries and the Pauline Auberle Foundation. Sonshine’s mission is to be a place of hope for the hurting by providing clothing, food, and counseling services to the homeless and less fortunate of the area.
