The Scoogie Events Share The Love Referral Program!

How it works: Once you have registered for either the Spring Fling 8k or the 5k, you will automatically be emailed a unique link in your confirmation email that you can then share with friends ANY WAY YOU'D LIKE: Post your link on Facebook, Twitter or email it to your friends, family & co-workers! 

Once five people register using your link, you'll automatically receive $20 credit right back on your original payment method! Pretty AWESOME huh?! Wanna hear something even cooler? Share your link as often as you'd like because we'll continue to reward you for every 5 friends that use your link to earn your registration back!'s REALLY TRUE!...Pretty cool huh?!

The Scoogie Events Share The Love Referral Program is a SUPER EASY process and you will LOVE seeing your money come back to you but, remember to make sure your link is used correctly or it won't work!

VERY Important Reminders:

~It will only count towards your referral if your link is used! Make sure you tell your friends to click on your link and then to continue the registration process without backing out of the page. If they back out and register not using your link, you will not receive referral credits!

~Remember, for this to work, you must share THE ENTIRE URL LINK (NOT just the referral code)

ONLY THE BEST SWAG.....Scoogie Events is pulling out ALL THE STOPS for this special event!!!

And...we will have plenty of folks cheering you on the whole way as well as one water stop for the 5k runners and two for the 8k runners. 

Why are we holding this event? Because we want to bring folks together in a meaningful way, get friends and families OUTSIDE to enjoy our beautiful area that we live in and most importantly, to help raise awareness and funds for the Wissahickon Watershed Association as well as Ainsley's Angels. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go directly to the Wissahickon Watershed Association & Ainsley's Angels

Both Scoogie Events and The Joseph Ambler Inn are holding nothing back and pulling out all of the stops to make sure that this event of it's kind will truly be one for the memory books. 

Having the beautiful & famous Joseph Ambler Inn play host to this event is a dream come true. The Inn is a perfect venue to host an event like this and the 202 Parkway is THE perfect run course. The combination of these two factors and the fact that Scoogie Events is bringing this race to you and will see to it that all runners needs and desires are met means that this race is surly not to be missed.

Click on the distance you'd like to race at the top of this page and follow the instructions or visit DQ EVENTS and search for Spring Fling.

The famous Joseph Ambler Inn will serve ALL runners a FULL COUNTRY BREAKFAST...yup..eggs, French toast casserole, bacon, potatoes, fruit, yogurt, muffins and pastries, coffee, tea & Juice. (limited to the first 500 registered, with a continental breakfast for everyone else) 

AND....(drum roll.......) Mimosas for ALL the runners (of age)...mock mimosas for underage.

The Joseph Ambler Inn will also provide $20 gift cards for each 8k & 5k runner!!!

That's just a start....Just wait till you see what else we have in store for everyone!

* BounceU hoops game and AWESOME Carlton Pools donated bounce house will be open for kids (or adults that feel so inclined)

AWARDS: "You ask for it.....we deliver": From now on, ALL Scoogie events age group awards will be in FIVE YEAR age increments!! Awards given for 8K & 5k only, Kids Run is for FUN! Overall winner (male and female), plus top three males and females in each age category: 14 & under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70 & over. No mailing of awards or shirts.

Again, no mailing of awards or shirts. If you have to leave the race early for ANY reason, you must notify us to save your award.  If you do not, we cannot hold/store awards and will likely be given to a race day entry or someone else. It is simply too much to hold/store & inventory the awards. 

Note: If you are registered for this race and you registered in time to choose a t shirt/1/4 zip size BUT you are unable to run for whatever reason, you will NEED TO CONTACT us BEFORE RACE DAY and let us know if you'd like us to hold on to your reserved giveaway (t shirt or 1/4 zip) for you to pick up at a future Scoogie Event. If you do not do this, we cannot hold you shirt and it will be given to someone that registered after the deadline. We cannot mail shirts. 

**Packet Pick up will be on FRIDAY, April 13th at NORTH WALES RUNNING COMPANY from 5-7 PM :-) A racer email will be sent out the Monday before the race detailing everything that you will need to know about packet pick up and race day details.

***If you cannot attend packet pick up on FRIDAY, April can pick up your packet on race morning starting at 6:30 am.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email the good folks at Scoogie Events and they will respond promptly.
