Some people get a little grumpy when they turn 40. We couldn't be happier. As we prepare for our 40th annual Runner's Den Pancake Run presented by IHOP, we hope you will join us to enjoy the rich history and competition at one of the oldest and most popular events on the Valley running calendar.
Our goal each year is to stage the finest event possible; merging a competitive athletic event with a family-fun atmosphere. And of course, IHOP has joined us again to provide their signature post-race pancake breakfast and to present our returning race theme, "Pace, Love & Pancakes”.
We are happy to announce that Bill Rodgers, four time Boston and New York Marathon winner will be returning to the Valley to help celebrate our 40th anniversary. One of the greatest runners of our time, Bill headlined our inaugural event back in 1979 in addition to races 2-12, 15, 20 and 25. We are thrilled that he will be joining us again for the big day.
Remember, the event is limited to the first 2,000 entrants. Last year the field filled quickly so enter early.
