Houtzdale Days Annual 5K* Run/Walk and Fireman's Challenge

Houtzdale, Pennsylvania

Houtzdale, Pennsylvania

Fri 21st July 2023

2 races

Organiser's Description

The Houtzdale Days 5K Walk/Run and Fireman’s Challenge is an annual event during our Houtzdale Days celebration.  Participants are awarded medals for 1st,  2nd, and 3rd place for Male and Female in each category.  
Registration is $20. All proceeds go directly to Houtzdale Fire Company. 
****** NEW COURSE THIS YEAR ****** The course is slightly longer (3.37 miles) than the standard distance (3.1 miles), but is more manageable for more runners and walkers. Visit our Facebook page for a video of the course: https://www.facebook.com/HoutzdaleDays5K
 The Fireman's Challenge will follow the same course as the 5k, but participants must wear or carry (but not with the aid of a bag) turnout gear for the entire race. Turnout gear includes boots, hat, pants, and coat. Insulation is not required. The first person to cross the finish line will win $250.00 for the Fire Company or EMS of their choice. Based on previous year's weather, this challenge will be dependent on weather conditions. Conditions will be evaluated throughout the day race day, and if weather is too hot or unfavorable The Fireman's Challenge may be modified or discontinued. This decision will be at the discretion of the Race Director.
Shirts will only be guaranteed with registrations received by 11:59pm on July 1st. I'd like to maximize the donation to the Houtzdale Fire Company and by ordering additional shirts that I cannot ensure will be given away will cut into those donations. If you would like a shirt, make sure you get your registration in soon!!
Because this race is about bringing the community together and supporting those who support us in a time of need, we will be waiting until all racers have crossed the finish line to give out medals. This normally takes place between 8-8:15pm. It would be greatly appreciated that if you win your division, you stick around to get your medal and a picture. I know some of us are faster than others, but that does not make those slower any less of a racer than you. Please show your support to those who ran, walked, or crawled the same distance as you.
The Houtzdale Fire Company cannot thank the community enough for your continued support of the Houtzdale Days 5k Run/Walk and Fireman's Challenge.
See you at the starting line!
