All classes with at least 50% participation will receive a doughnut party!



The 5K Course will take you through the Penn campus on Locust Walk to Penn Park, and back*. The 1 Mile Fun Run will go to the compass at 37th and Locust and back. The start and finish line will be on Locust Street, by the PAS playground. We are asking that runners do not bring pets or strollers on the 5K course and to train to be off the course by 9:20 A.M. to ensure a safe start to the 1 Mile Fun Run. Strollers for the 1 Mile Fun Run are welcome. Click here for a map of last year's route*.


Prizes will be awarded to 5K runners across age categories at the conclusion of the 1 Mile Fun Run. All 1 Mile Fun Run participants will receive a medal as they cross the finish line.


If you or your child have been diagnosed with a medical condition, like asthma, please use this link to make the race staff aware. All persons diagnosed with asthma MUST CARRY THEIR INHALER on their person at all times during the race. For any questions, please contact Nurse Natanya.

All Hands on Deck! We need over one hundred volunteers to help out with the race. This is our school's biggest fundraiser, and we can't do it without you. We will follow-up with additional information and details after you sign up. If you have questions before signing up, please contact Casey Boss. All day-of race volunteers receive a FREE 100% cotton T-shirt (PAS uniform-compliant). NEW THIS YEAR: as an added incentive, 'on-course' 5K volunteers will receive a FREE snack bag when they check in to keep them nourished while cheering on runners!

Running Clubs: the more parents who can help mean the more children who can participate in these popular clubs. Clearances needed.

  • Mr. Hunn will lead the 5K training club on Mondays and Wednesdays April 15 - June 7 for grades 3 - 5. Please email him if you can help. You don't have to be a runner! Just standing at corners to help kids cross the street is a big help.
  • Ms. Schaffer will lead the Fun Run training club for grades K - 2 on Thursdays, May 9, 16, 23, and 30. Please email her if you can help.


We are so grateful to the many businesses and individuals who have agreed to help sponsor our race! Our goal is to raise $35,000, money that goes straight back to our children's classrooms in one form or another. Please visit our sponsorship page for more details on sponsorship levels and perks. If you can recommend any businesses (your employer, stylist, dentist, contractor, apartment manager, etc.), please let us know by submitting the sponsorship form HERE!


Gold Level: $1,501 - $3,500
