CUSTOM VIRTUAL RACES
Check out these awesome custom Virtual Races hosted by Gone For a RUN
Running From 2020
In 2018, the Pine Richland TD Club alongside Burn Boot Camp Wexford, PA, collaborated on a Women's Football Clinic. All funds raised by the event were then donated to a local fundraiser. In 2019, a member of the Pine Richland and Burn Boot Camp communities lost the head of their family. Ryan Malady was an all-around phenomenal human being and loved by everyone that had the privilege of getting to meet him. Because of COVID-19, and for the safety of everyone involved, we have decided to replace the Football Clinic with a virtual 5K for this year! All proceeds from this race will be donated to a Scholarship Fund in memory of Ryan Malady, which was established last year. Thank you for participating!
