Jack Duffy 5K Power Run
In-Person and Virtual Run/ Walk
The Jack Duffy 5K Power Run and 1M walk is back and continuing the flexibility of in-person or virtual options! This fourth annual event is held to honor and celebrate the life of Jack Duffy, a brilliant and kind young man, Hatboro-Horsham graduate, Dartmouth student, entrepreneur, and accomplished runner whose purpose was “to serve, help, and empower others.” Proceeds will benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Greater Philadelphia to support their mission to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide in our community (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties.)
The event will take place on Sunday, August 14, with virtual submissions accepted from August 12 – 15 in case of conflict. The in-person run and walk will be held in Horsham, PA, starting and ending at the Hatboro-Horsham High School Stadium and continuing along the beautiful, paved Horsham Power Line Trail. For the virtual event, you can run or walk wherever you enjoy the outdoors.
Online registration is open through August 12, with t-shirts available for those registered by July 24. Pickup for bibs and t-shirts is available at check-in on race day beginning at 7:15 am, with the race starting promptly at 8:00. Awards for the in-person race will be given to the top three male and female runners, and virtual participants will be eligible for raffle prizes based on submitting results and/ or photos. Please join us again this year to honor Jack’s commitment to promote physical and mental health and share your event photos on this site to connect with and inspire others!
