The Quakertown Rotary Club Presents The 9th Annual
Rotary Run for Youth
10 Mile & 4 Mile Races
The race has been rescheduled for Sat. March 21st, there will be race day registration
Join us for the 9th annual Rotary Run for Youth 10 Mile and 4 Mile races. This challenging late winter 10 miler is a good test in advance of the spring race season while the 4 miler is a rolling out-and-back course for runners who prefer shorter distances. Both courses run through the rolling hills of Upper Bucks County and are well marked with signs and volunteers at all major intersections. While the roads are open, there is relatively little traffic.
Facilities include ample parking, indoor registration and awards and a generous post-race buffet featuring hot soup, grilled foods and fruit.
Founded in 1905, Rotary International is a service club dedicated to the ideal of “Service Above Self.” With Clubs in over 100 countries, there are more than one million Rotarians worldwide.
The Quakertown Rotary Club has been performing community service work since 1924. For more information about the Quakertown Rotary Club, visit the Club site at www.quakertownrotary.org
Organizations supported by the Quakertown Rotary Club include the Upper Bucks YMCA, Children's Development Program, Habitat for Humanity of Bucks County, the Quakertown Historical Society and The Quakertown Parenting Center
The race proceeds fund a variety of youth programs. These include scholarships for deserving high school seniors and Student of the Month Awards at Quakertown High School. Quakertown Rotary also sponsors attendees at the Camp Neidig Leadership Training Camp and Pennsylvania Free Enterprise Week.
