SANATOGA PA – Wednesday (March 19, 2014) at 3 p.m. is when advance registration will close on the 10th annual Coventry Challenge 5-K Run and 1-Mile Walk fund-raisers to benefit Coventry Christian Schools, 699 N. Pleasant View Rd. The events begins Saturday (March 22) at 9 a.m. from the school grounds.
Registration is available online through mid-week, here. The cost for individual runners or walkers is $30 in either event; entire families may participate at a flat fee of $90.
Drivers in the area of North Pleasant View Road near Welsh Drive are urged to use caution Saturday and beware of runners on the course.
Headmaster Paul Q. Fisher reported late last week that “the snow is all melted off of the course, the weather is looking warmer and dry, and 40 volunteers are ready to make it a great day” for participants. Public and school family registration for the run got under way in January.
The run is part of the school’s mission to expanding its educational services to all families who want it, its directors say. The run last year raised more than $21,000, exceeding its 2013 goal by 5 percent. This year’s goal is $25,000.
