Members of the Shohola Boy Scout Troop 76 will sponsor their second annual Shohola Barryville Bridge 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, Oct. 19.
The event will serve as the kickoff to Pumpkins in the Park, a long standing community event held in Shohola every October. Proceeds from the 5K will support Troop 76's many activities that include: merit badge opportunities, summer camp fees and equipment for camping trips. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to The Ecumenical Food Pantry of Pike County.
The 2013 Run/Walk is scheduled for Saturday, October 19 at 10 am and will be at Rohman Park
in Shohola. Additional events include the "5K Run/Walk" and "Kids' K."
The 5K course winds through the rolling hills of Shohola Township, the village of Shohola, then across the Delaware River on the Shohola-Barryville Bridge into Barryville, NY. A short out and back down River Road in Barryville is followed by a return trip across the bridge and then a loop through Shohola back to the finish line in Rohman Park.
The "Kids' K" will be entirely at Rohman Park. Two age groups will compete with awards for the top three finishers in each race.
