Hellbender 5k & Half Marathon

PLACE
Sun August 18, 2019
Route 54 Parking Area - Weiser State Forest
Roaring Creek Tract
Bear Gap, PA US 17824
DESCRIPTION
The Hellbender is back!  This is a great course for both road or trail runners.  Fast, flat, out and back along the scenic lakes and beautiful Weiser State Forest. 
Falcon Race Timing has teamed up with the RCVCA to help promote clean water in the state forest and surrounding Roaring Creek Watershed.  Proceeds with help benefit RCVCA.
This race will sell out and is capped at 325 participants.  Don’t wait and miss out.  Sign up today!   
Registration – 7am
Half Marathon Start – 8:30am
5k Start – 8:45am
Where:
Route 54 Parking Area (Located on PA RT 54 between Mount Carmel and Elysburg)
Weiser State Forest

Roaring Creek Tract
Bear Gap, PA 17824
The race gets its name from the species of aquatic salamander known as the hellbender, which are native to the hills and mountains of the eastern U.S., and can grow to as much as two feet long. Because they breathe through their skin, they require healthy, pristine, unpolluted streams and creeks to survive.
Due to development and urbanization over recent decades, however, many of their habitats have become fouled and their numbers have drastically declined — they’re just one of the many species the race organizers hope to benefit over the long term with their efforts here.
Both the 5K and the half marathon races follow out-and-back courses that start and finish at the Route 54 parking area in Bear Gap, which lies between the two small towns of Elysburg and and Mount Carmel.
From there, runners make their way along the roads that wind along the reservoir lakes inside this 9,000-acre park, one of 16 tracts that make up the Weiser State Forest in what is known as the ridge and valley region of eastern Pennsylvania.
The course for the half marathon is mostly fast and flat through the Roaring Creek Tract, and takes runners both along the shores of the lakes inside the park as well as on trails through its densely wooded forests.

Smallfoot Trail Fest (2019)

Smallfoot Trail Fest
July 27, 2019
Mt Pisgah State Park, Troy, PA
The Smallfoot Trail Fest was created to inspire kids 12 and under to get outdoors, try the sport of trail running, and boost their confidence in outdoor exploration. Pisgah Runners, ReVibe Gear, and the PA Trail Dogs have all teamed up to offer this event free of charge for participants. We are working on providing some other kids' activities along with the trail run, so stay tuned. 

The course will be about 3 miles long with a few small hills for the kids to challenge themselves. There may be some small stream crossings and muddy sections — the kids will love them! The course will be well-flagged and staffed with volunteers to guide the racers. There will be one aid station along the route. No runners will be out there alone at any point. Parents/Guardians are allowed to run with their kids if needed but should not sign themselves up for the event. If for some reason a parent can't run but still wants someone to be with their child, we may be able to offer a "pacer" to run with them. We will have a lunch for the kids after the race along with other activities. There’s a great playground and a free swimming pool adjacent to the start/finish line. The playground will be open all day, and the pool will open at 11 am. Make sure you bring your swimsuits to cool off after the race! Canoe, kayak, and paddleboat rentals are all available at the lake as well.
Registration is free but all kids must have a signed waiver by a parent or guardian. Registration ends on July 8th or if we reach the 300 runner cut-off. There will be no day-of registration, so make sure you sign up in advance!

Nineteen years later, Jean passed away from breast cancer on April 24, 2009.  Cancer affects millions of people every year and this family is determined to join in the fight against cancer so that other families may be spared the heartache that they have become all too familiar with. 
Proceeds:
All donations and proceeds are split between the local Nancy Quatrini Fund, American Lung Association, and National Breast Cancer Foundation 
Purpose:
This event’s mission is to help those within our community get the care that they might otherwise not be able to afford, as well as contribute to the research devoted to curing various types of cancer.  Cancer is not picky; it affects EVERYONE no matter age, race, or religion.  This event is meant to raise funds to fight cancer and bring a community together.
This is something that the Onofre family would like to turn into an annual event. Each year, they would like to support and honor the victims and survivors of various cancers.
