Set a Date
No matter if it is your first 5K race or your hundredth, when you register for a 5K race it will keep you motivated and on task to reach your goal of running a successful 5K race. By actually setting up a date on your calendar, you pinpoint the time that you have to be ready to step on that starting line of your 5K race.
Prepare a training schedule immediately after booking your 5K race. New runners should begin with light training and build into a longer running routine.
Join us for the 5th year of this Joint Race between the Northern Blair Recreation Center and Victory Therapeutic Horsemanship in 2019!
RACE DAY IS OCTOBER 12, 2019
The NBC Rec Center is very proud to partner with Victory Therapeutic Horsemanship for our 5th Annual Victory Run. VTH is one of the few therapeutic organizations serving veterans exclusively with a program designed for service members of every generation. VTH is proud to provide veterans in Central PA a much needed equine therapy program at absolutely no cost.
All races will start and end at NBC Rec Center with a .45 pistol shot. The 10K route and 5k routes take place in the scenic countryside and peaceful neighborhoods surrounding the NBC Rec Center, providing runners with a fun, challenging course.
Both runs & 2 mile walk will give participants the opportunity to honor a beloved veteran. If you pre-register for this race we will display the name of the individual you wish to recognize along the route. Ribbons will be provided to wear the day of the race to show your support.
