There is something for everyone!  A variety of events are available to participate in including Bristol-Myers Squibb 5K or Genentech 10K run/race, the Mike Geltrude Foundation 5K or 10K walk and six the Briova Rx Cycling events (10, 30, 50, 75 and the Will Stone 100 miles). Walkers and Runners, will enjoy local chocolate at rest stops located approximatley every mile. Cyclists will enjoy riding through the beautiful countryside of central Pennsylvania with its Amish farms, wooded areas, covered bridges while visiting the surrounding areas of local  historic chocolate towns of Hershey (home of Hershey's Chocolate), Elizabethtown (home of M&M Mars), and Lititz (home of Wilbur Chocolate Company).
