So if you aren’t register to run, go to or and get registered now! Participants can always register on, April 25, the day of the Run and Walk. Come to Haverford High School, 200 Mill Road. Registration will begin at 4 p.m. inside the school.

The Elementary One-Mile Challenge begins at 5 p.m. right in front of Haverford High on Mill Road. Another cool reason to run?
