WHY ARE WE ORGANIZING THIS EVENT: 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 raise funds for the Wissahickon Watershed Association & Ainsley's Angels!!!

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

Having the beautiful & famous Joseph Ambler Inn, Montgomery Township and the new US 202 Parkway play host to this event is a dream come true. This is a THE perfect location to host an event like this and the US 202 Parkway is THE perfect run course. The combination of these 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.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO RECEIVE WHEN YOU REGISTER FOR THE AWESOME EVENT:

The famous Joseph Ambler Inn will serve ALL runners a FREE CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST!!!!

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! 

AWARDS: "You ask for it.....we deliver": From now on, ALL Scoogie events age group awards will be in FIVE YEAR age increments!! Awesome awards for age groups in both the 8k & 5k runs! Awards given for 8K & 5k only, Kids Run is for FUN!
