About This Activity

Come join us for the 3rd Annual Swatara Township Police Department 5K Hero Run on November 1, 2015.  This 5K Race is set in a unique location along Tecport Drive and Paxton Street.  The theme of the 5K Hero Run relates to everyone whether you know someone in the armed services or public safety sector OR simply have a hero of your own.  This race brings all of us together for one reason, to support our HEROES!  Check out our map of the course below or you can view it on the event website.  The course this year has changed from last year since we are now starting and ending the race at the Harrisburg Mall.  A portion of the race actually takes you through the mall!

This race supports the Keystone Wounded Warriors which aids veterans residing in or who have ties to Pennsylvania, COPS for K.O.P.S which supports the children of fallen police officers in the state of Pennsylvania and the Swatara Township Police Department's Crime Prevention fund.

Registration Fees:

     $15:  Month of May only!

     $25:  June 1, 2015 through October 9, 2015

     $30:  October 10, 2015 up to the day of the race

PARTICIPANTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME TO THE RACE DRESSED IN THEIR FAVORITE "HERO'S" OUTFIT OR UNIFORM, INCLUDING MEMBERS OF THE ARMED SERVICES, POLICE, FIRE, EMS, SUPERHERO OR WHOMEVER YOUR HERO IS!
