The Valley Forge Revolutionary 5-Mile Run registration is now open and runners and walkers everywhere are invited to participate virtually during National Park Week, April 17th – 25th.
Organized by the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board (VFTCB), all proceeds from the event benefit Valley Forge National Historical Park. The cost is $40 with an option to make personal donations.
Runners can register online here.
New this year to enhance the virtual experience, participants will receive a personalized digital racing bib, and for the first time since the race’s inception in 2005, all registrants will earn a finisher medal.
For the race’s 15th anniversary, participants have the option to individually take on a modified version of the Valley Forge course.
Runners can also choose their own route to complete the five-mile challenge anywhere in the world.
Runners are asked to track their route at any point during National Park Week and upload their results to their runsignup.com profile.
Funds raised from the race are part of various infrastructure improvement projects and programming to enhance visitor experience, like the recently renovated Steuben Plaza area and meadow shelter for the 3.5-mile Grand Parade Trail
“We’re very excited about the new opportunities this year’s virtual run will bring to our event, said Race Director Kirsten Tallman. “Being able to invite runners from all over the world to join in on our mission of supporting the important American story that is Valley Forge brings our mission to a whole new level. I love that we can connect the historic message of perseverance and determination to a broader audience.”
