The Walnut Street Playground Association’s 3rd Annual Running of the Nuts 5K Run and Walk will be held on Saturday November 17, 2012. The course for the race will be entirely on the D & L Trail heading south towards Treichlers. The course is a completely flat course, making for a good race to improve on your previous run! The race begins at 9 a.m., and will be held rain or shine. Registration and check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. Parking for the race will be available at the Slatington Trailhead, at Main and Railroad Streets. Pre-registration is $15, before November 2. Runners under 17 pay only $10! Awards will be given out to the top three runners in several age categories, as well as the top three overall male and female finishers. Post race refreshments will be available. For more information or for an application please call (610) 554-4099 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and put race application in the subject line. Information and the registration form can also be found on the Walnut Street Playground Association page on Facebook. The race will benefit Walnut Street Playground. The association commission hopes to see all the local runners and trail walkers participate.
