“I love that the Run4Luck is a great race for both serious runners who want the timed results, and the more casual people like walkers and families with kids, strollers, and dogs. Everyone is welcome, with all ages and abilities,” stated Anna Brendle Kennedy, President of the Junior League of Lancaster, PA. “By offering a hybrid option this year, we’re also greatly looking forward to the virtual participation of individuals and families from wherever they’re located who are able to offer their support to the League at a distance.”
Virtual participants are required to complete the 4-mile run, 2-mile walk, and kids’ fun run on race day by 11:59 p.m. When complete, the time should be recorded and posted to the Run4Luck Run Sign Up page.
