Some people run for fun. Some people run for fitness. Some people run to spend time with friends.
What would you run for?
How about free Berkey Creamery ice cream (and a cool T-shirt, too)?
Ah…now there’s a tempting reason and sweet reward for running (or walking) the Penn State Behrend Athletics first Ice Cream Run on Friday, August 28 at 6:30 p.m.
Not up for 3.1 miles? There’s also a Family Fun 1-Mile Walk.
The races start and finish in the Junker Center parking lot, near the new soccer complex. The course is on all paved paths through campus and Coach Greg Cooper (cross-country and track) was merciful when he designed the course as it goes up first, then is mostly flat or downhill. Course map here (also posted below).
Race registration is $25 and includes a long-sleeve shirt and free Berkey’s Creamery ice cream when you finish the race. Register here (online registration only). By the way, this is a family-friendly event – there’s a $5 discount for every additional family member you register.
Four legged friends are even welcome to run with you, too, but they must be leashed and under control at all times.
This is a fun run, so there will not be a timer or awards.
All proceeds benefit Behrend Athletics! For more information call 814-898-6240.
