The end of summer. Is it really? Beings how I haven’t even come close to a heat stroke yet it feels as though we’ve had more of a five month spring instead of a summer.

Whatever the case may be, The End of Summer Fire Run is happening Sunday, August 25th at 8:00 am.

The course starts on the corner of Girard and Prospect and end in PB. It’s four miles. That’s an odd distance. It’s more than a 5K (3.1 miles) but it isn’t 5 miles.

Who knows? It’s a great, fast, course and it benefits fire fighters.

They are charging money for this event. I think $48 for four miles is a bit much. $12 per mile? Let’s figure that out for other events.

  • $74 for a 10K
  • $157 for a half marathon
  • $314 for a full marathon


Regardless of the price, this event is very popular and attracts a lively crowd of runners.
