6th annual MAG 5k FALL FLASH
Held annually on the first Saturday of November
... Walkers welcome to participate
Saturday, November 1, 2014
The course for this event is a popular one – it crosses the Susquehanna River via the Veterans Memorial Bridge (Rt. 462) between Lancaster & York County which is closed to vehicular traffic during the event. Enjoy the scenic course against the fall foliage of the river valley. The Run begins in Wrightsville at 8:30 am and finishes in “record time” against this autumn backdrop. Pre-registration is available and includes a selection of shirt options. Please refer to the registration form for details. Participants may also register on the day of the Run beginning at 7:30 am. The Run is held rain or shine. For more information call 717-684-5249. Walkers and those with strollers welcome to participate. Please, no pets.
Why are the letters"MAG" at the beginning of this race name? Shortly before the inaugural running of this event in 2009, Melissa A. Glenn, then the director of the Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce, suddenly passed away. The SVCC Board of Directors named this event in her honor and memory.
We are ready to accept your registrations for the SVCC athletic events. The MAG Fall Flash is one of three such events that we coordinate. If you like a 5k run in crisp autumn air, this is for you! Looking to complete a personal goal? Join us in this event for that personal challenge.
