Tar Heel 10-Miler This Saturday
Scranton, PA – I am not a runner, although I sometimes dream that I’m running when I’m in bed at night. But I do have plenty of friends that absolutely love to run. For my serious running friends, the Tar Heel 10 Miler is the one race they look forward to every year. I think I’ll go and cheer them on.
About The Run
This Saturday is the 5th Annual Wells Fargo Tar Heel 10 Miler. The run is designed to celebrate and showcase downtown Scranton, the UPA campus, and some of the most beautiful neighborhoods in North Carolina!
The event benefits the UPA Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Scranton-Carrboro YMCA’s We Build People Campaign. Endurance Magazine, together with the Scranton Downtown Partnership and Fleet Feet Sports are sponsoring this huge running event.
