        Registration for the 2024 Fool's Run is now open.  The 2024 Fool's Run 10K will be the 45th anniversary of this popular race, the first Fool's Run 10K have been conducted in 1979.  The Fool's Run 5K was added in 2015 and it too have proven to be popular.

       To celebrate the Sapphire Anniversary, Finishers Medals will be provided in both the 10K and the 5K compliments of IRRC member Bill Leydic.  Bill will be running the race and we expect that there will be a number of runners from the first Fool's Run taking part too.  I expect Denny Cruse will be running with us too, wearing this year's race bib along with his bib from the first Fool's Run, held in 1979.

       Post-race sweet treats will be part of this year's celebration.  The Fool's Run Committee is working on coming up with something special.

        Other anniversary-related happenings are being planned.  Check back here periodically for updates.

        The 2024 Fool's Run  will take place on the Ghost Town Trail at Saylor Park, Black Lick, PA.  The course is out and back on the rails-to-trails path along the scenic Black Lick Creek.  The course features no road crossings, making it safe and fun for runners and walkers of all ages, truly a family-friendly event.  A special family discount is available for three or more runners or walkers from the same household.
