ABOUT THE SWCC 5K RUN

Since 2009, the Southwest Center City 5k Run has served the area as an active, community-building event. In addition to hosting hundreds of participants in a fun, scenic, run/walk, the event gives back to the community through its non-profit, SWCC Run, Inc. Everyone is welcome to join us by walking, running or cheering in the event.

RACE FEATURES

  • Fan Zone: What’s more fun than finishing a race in front of a packed crowd? Invite your friends and family–we will have food, beverages, and entertainment available at the Chester A. Arthur schoolyard.
  • Kids under the age of 6 are invited to run the Spooky Sprint and kids ages 6-14 can register for the Monster Mile. Both events are “fun runs” and will not be timed races. We also continue to welcome strollers in the 5k if your child is too young to participate on his or her own.
  • Electronic timing for the 5K, which means faster and more accurate results.
  • A Performance T-shirt is included with every 5k registration! No more throw-away t-shirts.

This year, all proceeds will be donated to the Friends of Chester Arthur (FoCA) & Stanton Community Partners to support projects at the local schools. These organizations were formed by Southwest Center City parents and community members who are committed to partnering with the schools in order to foster a robust learning environment for our neighborhood children.
