2022 Lighthouse 5k Run and Fun Walk

Cliick HERE for the 2023 Race information

Thank you for joining us for our Very First Lighthouse 5K Run and Kids Fun Walk at the Valley Lighthouse in Lykens PA!

Here’s what some of our runners said:

I just wanted to say that you did a great job with your first event! The route was enjoyable, and the atmosphere was fun. The swag bags and food afterwards were quite generous! The only thing that was a little confusing was the start time for the 5k. 

Thank you so much for starting a small-town 5K in upper Dauphin County! Laurel A.

Thank you and everyone involved in putting together the 5K. I enjoyed running the race  and I will definitely run it again next year!

The course was very nice, and accurately measured. Also, you had a good variety of food.

Also, in my opinion, there is no need to offer cash prizes. The money should go to the Valley Lighthouse. Thank you again! Dave M.

For a first year run, everyone involved did awesome.  Course well marked, with helpers! Nice slight upgrade to turnaround & then slight down coming back. It doesn’t get better than that. Award presentation was great. Shirts looked great. Helping support your charity is a big plus.

I’ll be back next year & will tell others about it. Thanks for the fun day! Randy M.

I thought the event was well-done. The course wasn’t overly taxing. I LOVED the post-race spread! Very generous and Filling. Please keep if possible for next year.  Jesse M.

All 5K participants received a swag bag, disposable chip timing, race results, awards ceremony for placers, post-race nutrition, and a chance to win prize giveaways!
