  • Date: Sunday, September 29th, 2024
  • Time: 
    • 8:30 am - Registration

Tech T-shirt, get it free or donate it and get a discount

Deadline to register and still get a shirt is on September 11th.

The race will be chip timed. This means that your race clock starts only when you cross the start line, and stops when you cross the finish line. So if you started and finished behind everyone else, it is still possible that you beat someone because you completed the course in less time.  




Dog walk/run Rules

Register for the 5K then bring your pooch and enjoy 3.1 miles of running or walking. 

  1. Dogs must be friendly to people and other dogs.
  2. No retractable leashes. This is dangerous as it can trip other participants.
  3. Bring poop bags. You are responsible for cleaning up after your fur baby.
  4. Leashes must be 6 feet long or less.
  5. Bring water and treats for your dog.
  6. Position yourself correctly at the start area. If you intend to run fast, then move to the front of the pack.
  7. Pet parent and dog will share 1 race bib.
  8. Have fun.


All proceeds will benefit the students of the Central Elementary School of Allentown PA on 9th Street and Turner. Central Elementary is one of 15 elementary schools located in the city of Allentown.

Most of its students are very poor with 89% of families classified as Low Income, and everyone receives Free/Reduced Lunch. It serves a community with a poverty rate of 38.64% of the City's population. (2013 Census). 

We aim to raise $5,000 to help provide for the students' sports teams and fund new gym equipment.
