The following information is excerpted from a letter from Tammy S. Cohen, Director of Recreation and Community Programming for Radnor Township.
Dear Radnor Township Neighbors, Churches, and Apartment Residents,
I am writing to inform you about the 36th Annual Penn Medicine Radnor Run Event that will take place on Sunday, October 27, 2013.
This 5 mile race is a great Main Line tradition that benefits the American Lung Association. The start time for this year’s race is 8:30 am (staff, volunteers, and participants will arrive earlier) and we are expecting over 800 participants. We estimate that the race should be over by 11:00am and all event activities to be completed by approximately 12:00 pm.
The course begins and ends at the Radnor Township Building on Iven Avenue. Iven Avenue will be closed from Radnor Crossing Apartments to Conestoga Road (only local traffic will be let through at times that are safe and when large groups of participants are not on the street).
Runners will travel down Iven Avenue, crossing Conestoga Road onto Church Road and continuing on Church Road until it becomes Brooke Road. After winding down to the end of Brooke Road, participants will turn left onto Darby-Paoli Road before turning right into the Willows. The course goes through the Willows Park and back to Darby-Paoli Road where participants will turn right before turning left onto Newtown Road.
Participants will travel up Newtown Road, turn left on to Abrahams Lane and continue on to Lesley Road where they will turn right. Upon reaching Parkes Run Lane, runners will turn left and go back to Abrahams Lane where they will turn right making their way to Church Road and turning right. Crossing Conestoga Road, runners will make their way down Aberdeen Avenue, turning right on to Orchard Way and again on to Brookside Avenue. Finally, runners will turn left onto Iven Avenue and head for the finish line at Encke Park.
Police and volunteer course marshals will be handling traffic and safety concerns as runners pass through each section of the course.
