Important Notes in Preparation for the Blaze of Glory 5K:
DATE: Saturday, March 16, 2019
LOCATION: Plumsteadville Volunteer Firehouse on Stump Road (5064 Stump Road, Pipersville, PA: just off Route 611).
PLEASE GET THERE EARLY AS WE HAVE AWESOME PRE-RACE ENTERTAINMENT, RUNNER WARM-UP & SPONSOR FUN!
Keep an eye out for our race day schedule!
Support Our Local Food Pantries: please consider bringing a non perishable food item for donation to help stock our local food pantries.
Parking: at this point, we have a big crowd of runners and more are arriving every day!! Due to limited parking in the Firehouse lot please carpool if possible. In addition, we encourage you to park at the Giant Shopping Center parking lot and walk to the Firehouse (the Giant shopping center is located on 611 just before the intersection of Stump Road and 611 and is a short walk to the Firehouse). If you park close to Capri Pizza, you can go straight back behind Capri and the Fire House is right there. For those who wish to participate and then leave right away, this is your best bet since Stump and Meetinghouse will be closed until they can be safely re-opened. Regardless of where you park, please keep in mind that there will be many children in the Fire House Lot and to please use extra, extra caution! Thanks!
Pre-Registration: for those runners that have already pre-registered for the 5K event, you still need to check in, collect your race t-shirt and bib, etc. on race morning. You can pick up your items starting at 7:30am. There will be a separate line for those who have already registered. For those that have registered for all 7 Bucks 5K Series Races you will receive a special Bucks 5K Series red bib that you will be able to use for each race.
Race Day Registration: for those who are registering on race day for the 5K, please make sure that you come to the Fire House early. There will be a separate line where you will fill out your registration form, pay and collect your run items. Registration for all 7 races in the Bucks 5K Series will also be available at the Blaze of Glory Run. Look for the special Bucks 5K Series Table.
Great Pre-Race Entertainment: Keep an eye out for what we have in store this year!

We will have an update schedule closer to the race.
** Note that the police and fire crew make every effort to reopen the roads as soon possible as runners are cleared off and it is deemed safe to do so.
*Please also note that for those participants who are running and/or walking the 5K course for a period longer than one hour after the start of the race that the roads on the 5K course may be reopened to vehicle traffic and you may be asked to move to the sidewalk or one side of the road for your safety. Course marshals will remain on the course until all runners have safely cleared the course and crossed the finish line.**
