The Pennsylvania Dutch Council is collaborating with Power Packs Project to host a Virtual Race over the month of June 2020. Proceeds from the race will be shared between Power Packs Project and the Pennsylvania Dutch Boy Scout Council. We are encouraging our Scouting families and the community to join us by running, walking, biking, hiking, or shuffling a 5K or 15K at home, in their neighborhood, on a track, or on their favorite trail, so long as they follow social distancing guidelines. Each participant will be emailed a bib that they can print and are asked to share a picture of their race on the Virtual Race Facebook page

The $13.00 registration fee will include a print at home bib and a patch to commemorate the race.

To register for the race visit
