PLEASE NOTE: CDC guidelines for COVID-19 will be followed to ensure everyone’s safety. Masks are required at all times except for racers/walkers during the run/walk. Everyone must maintain the six foot social distancing requirements between their own teams and other participants.


Runners & Walkers, Friends, Family
& Your Dog, too!

Please join Homeland for an uplifting event while supporting and raising funds for benevolent services provided to our hospice patients and their families.

Homeland Hospice is a non-profit outreach program of Homeland Center, providing more than 10 years of service to our community. Much of our enhanced care—massage, music and pet therapy, extra in-home relief hours, professional photography, and more—is dependent on the generosity of folks like you.

Whether you are a serious runner, or participate to commemorate the memory of a loved one, ALL are welcome! Join us individually or with a team. And, please consider an additional donation to have your loved one’s name printed on the front of this year’s t-shirts.

THE 5K is a measured five kilometers (3.1 miles), relatively flat course at the Rossmoyne
Business Center, beginning and ending at 5000 Ritter Road, Mechanicsburg.

AWARDS: Medals and $100 will be presented to the 5K Overall Male and Overall Female Champions. Ribbons will be presented to the top three Male and Female finishers in eight age brackets.

THE MEMORY WALK is a shorter distance along a portion of the same course.
