20th Annual Hybrid Hershey Miracle 5K Race 2023

Henry Hershey Field • 635 Brook Drive HersheyPA  17033 Organized by Hersheys Chocolate Miracle Race Team

About this event

The 20th Annual Hershey Miracle 5k Race is almost here! Sign up and join us on Saturday, September 16th.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary, The Hershey Company looks forward to raising money for Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) at Penn State Health's Children's Hospital by hosting an in-person 5K and 1-mile Fun Run/ Walk at Milton Hershey School on Saturday, September 16, 2023, and offering a virtual any way 5K option.

The in-person race will start at 8:00 a.m. at Henry Hershey Field, 635 Brook Drive. Hershey, PA 17033. The route will wind through the beautiful Milton Hershey School campus, giving participants a view of the gazebos and Founder’s Hall, with Hershey characters along the route to cheer them on! A 1-mile Fun Run/ Walk will begin at 8:30 a.m. Strollers and other “wheels” are welcome. No pets are allowed. Service animals are permitted.

Can't make it in person or live outside of the area? No problem!

We will have our virtual 5K available again this year! You can participate from Saturday, August 19 until Saturday, September 16 (end of day). Results can be submitted online. We look forward to seeing everyone's race photos on social media! Use hashtags #RunForCMN and #GiftOfGrowingUp so we can easily find your posts!

This race is a great way to exercise while also raising much needed funds for the Children’s Miracle Network at Penn State Health's Children's Hospital. Due to the support from our generous sponsors and participants, the 2022 Hershey Miracle 5K Race raised over $69,000. For those who have participated in the past, we thank you for your contributions and hope you will join us again! 

Registration is now open and will be open until September 14. Same day registration is available on-site at Henry Hershey Field, 635 Brook Drive. Hershey, PA 17033.
