  • Snap a picture of you and your tracker, pedometer, or treadmill console.
  • Email the picture to or post it on Instagram and tag @glenellynparkdist by 11:59pm on May 15.
  • All finisher pics will be entered to win a gift card to A Toda Madre and may be posted on our Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram pages.
  • Free to participate and open to the public. All ages welcome.
  • No registration required.
  • Print and cut out a race bib to wear on your run!

Please follow social distancing guidelines while you participate.
