A 5-mile run in Valley Forge Park set for April 22


The seventh Annual Revolutionary 5-mile Run will be held at Valley Forge National Historical Park on Sunday, April 22.

The run, which drew 1,625 registrants last year, benefits recreation and preservation initiatives at Valley Forge National Historical Park.

In its six-year history, runner registration fees and corporate sponsorships have raised more than $119,000 for the cause.

"We expect another tremendous turn-out this year, ..." said Paul Decker, president of the Valley Forge Convention and Visitors Bureau, the event sponsor.

The 5-mile run steps off at 8:30 a.m.  A 3-mile walk begins at 8:35 a.m., and a Young Patriots 1.776-kilometer Fun Run starts at 8:45 a.m.
