Register Now and Save on Lions Run/Walk
Preregistration for $30 is still available for the 22nd annual Swarthmore Lions Independence Eve 8K (5 mile) and 2 ½ Mile Walk. The race will go off at 7 p.m. on Wednesday evening, July 3, on a new course, covering a relatively flat 8K route through the tree-lined neighborhoods of Swarthmore borough. The 2½ Mile Walk route follows the first loop of the 8K.
Awards will be presented to the first three overall male and female runners and to the first three male and female runners in 9 age groups from 10 and under to 70 and over. Refreshments will be served after the race. Tech t-shirts are given to all preregistered runners and walkers and while supplies last.
If you miss preregistration, no worries: on-site registration is available for $35, starting at 5 p.m. on race evening along with packet pick-up in the Borough Hall lobby at 121 Park Avenue. Proceeds from the race support Lions charities, which include organizations that assist the visually impaired such as the Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Chester and the Delaware Valley Eye Bank.
