The 100th anniversary of the armistice ending World War 1 will be celebrated this Sunday. To raise money for Veterans Charities, Langhorne Borough is hosting the 4th annual American Legion Veteran’s Day 5K Run at 9 a.m. this Saturday, November 10th.
Hosted by the Jesse Soby Post #148 in Langhorne, funds raised through the run will split between Operation Comfort Warriors and Delaware Valley Stand Down. The race will begin at the post located at 115 W Richardson Ave in Langhorne.
There will be road closures and parking restrictions for the 5K Run. The road closures begin an hour before the event starts at 8 a.m., as Richardson Ave will be blocked off from Station thru Bellevue Avenues. Then starting at 8:30, Bellevue Ave will close from Maple to Richardson.
All roads will reopen at 11 a.m. and the Borough asks anyone driving through the area be respectful and follow the instructions of officers working the barricades.
Each registrant receives a commemorative T-shirt and refreshments. A water station will be provided on the course.
Registration is $35 per adult going the full distance, or $25 for adults who prefer to do the mile walk. Children are also granted the opportunity to run or walk the mile, for a lesser fee of $8.
Anyone with a military ID will only be charged $25 and registration closes right before the race begins Saturday. People with inquires can call the post at 215-757-3056.
