This is a two loop run course, (or one loop walk) in beautiful Arlington Cemetery, the resting place of Upper Darby’s beloved band director, Brad Schoener.
Along the course, runners and walkers will be treated to live music by some of Brad’s students and friends. After the race enjoy more live music right across the street at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center at the Music Marathon to benefit the Brad Schoener Fund.
Participation in this event has grown steadily over the last six years. We encourage everyone to register EARLY to guarantee your slot as we may sell out by race day!
Race day number pickup and registration will be held from 8:00 – 9:30 AM at the Upper Darby Performing Arts Center, (601 Lansdowne Avenue, Drexel Hill, PA 19026).
Parking available at Upper Darby High School and walk to School Lane entrance of the Arlington Cemetery.
