Join us for the Reynoldstown Wheelbarrow Festival .5K Race, the fun and thrilling .5K (.31 mile) race route through the heart of historic Reynoldstown! That's right, with this amazing fundraiser, you'll valiantly run (or walk or stroll) through about five blocks or .31 miles or 1642 steps… you get the idea. Finishers get the coolest t-shirt in town and other awesome goodies!
Event details and schedule
The .5K race, part of the annual Reynoldstown Wheelbarrow Festival, is scheduled to start promptly at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 14, 2019. Don’t be late – it will likely be over in about 20 minutes! There is a new route for 2019, with the starting line near the basketball courts in Lang Carson Park. You'll head west on Wylie, and turn down Flat Shoals. The route then goes west onto Manigault, and the finish line is in the Manigault Street Playlot, near the corner of Weatherby and Manigault. Check the photo gallery map for details!
This event is Reynoldstown's largest fundraiser and will include music, lantern making, yard games, food trucks, kids activities and a .5K race through the historic streets of Reynoldstown. This is an opportunity to celebrate the people of Reynoldstown and benefits the work of the Reynoldstown Civil Improvement League (RCIL). The festival is completely volunteer-run and is funded by grants and donations.
Festival beneficiaries include Lang Carson Park upkeep, beautification projects within the neighborhood, community engagement and stewardship priorities for the Reynoldstown Community including Neighbors In Need.
