Join Wilkes Barre Racing for Independence Day at the Scrantastic Spectacular celebration on Courthouse Square in downtown Scranton. We will be conducting the first annual Wendy's Race for a Home 5K at 5:00pm on July 3rd. The course begins and ends at the Lackawanna County Courthouse - home to live concerts, food vendors and the Entercom Communications Fireworks display. Runners and walkers will race out of town on Washington Street and then run/walk along the Scranton Riverwalk until crossing the Lackawanna River and finishing in front of the courthouse. Athletes will get a free tech shirt, age group ribbons and free snacks and refreshments after the race.
Joining Wilkes Barre Racing will be dozens of local foster care and adoption agencies. See the profiles of local children waiting to be adopted. Talk to local foster care and adoption counselors, specialists, parents and children. All this for $25!
Come for the run - stay for the fun!
Fireworks begin at sunset and concerts begin as soon as you finish the race.
Racers can register on-site Wednesday July 3rd beginning at 4:00pm or you can register in advance by downloading the form or signing up online. For more information go to:
