Some good news and some bad news concerning the upcoming 5K which was supposed to be held at Coca Cola Park…
There was a communication breakdown between the Run Lehigh Valley Staff and the Ironpigs organization that resulted in them canceling/changing our event…I will be happy to go into it in more detail if you are curious – just find me at the race and I will have a lot to say!
That’s the bad – now for the good
Pitchers Pub on Union Boulevard was gracious enough to help us out at a moment’s notice to be the gathering place for race-day registration, packet pickup and most importantly toilets. We will be using the parking lot at Pitchers Pub and be set up there for all race day activities. The course will start/end across the street and the course will be very similar to the original course we had set – less the chance to be in the stadium. Please park at Pitchers (570 Union Boulevard, Allentown, PA)
We understand that a lot of people were looking forward to the chance to start and end in the stadium and trust us – we were too. To help make amends for this change in addition to the game ticket and t-shirt you receive with registration – we are also adding some cash raffles available to everyone and offering all runners 50% off the Sportsfest 5K registration.
