Runners and bookworms alike will take to the streets of Penn Wynne on an upcoming October morning: Penn Wynne Library will hold its 12th annual 5K race on Oct. 13, with all proceeds from the race benefiting the library.
The race begins at 9 a.m. at the library (130 Overbrook Parkway), and participants can walk or run the course.
The top three male and female finishers will receive trophies, with a medal for the top finisher in each age group. But even if you're not quite as speedy, the first 200 people to register for the 5K will get a free t-shirt—plus, all kids get an award, too.
According to a press release, the 5K festivities go beyond the race, and will include arts and crafts, therapeutic massage, face painting, and a moon bounce in front of the library and at the churchyard next door.
