Runners choose from a 5-mile or a traditional 5-K (3 mile) course through rural North East, PA. Wind past residential neighorhoods into farm country and back again as you head towards the start/finish line at beautiful Mercyhurst University’s North East campus.
Interested in just running the QUAD, but didn’t participate in the other events? You are more than welcome to join us as a competitor for the QUAD and pay the day – of participation fee of $25.
Cash prizes will be awarded for top finishers in the Run event. And, we’ll name the Fastest in Erie County with some one-of-a-kind swaag!
