About the Race
This race is in memory of Damon Young, who passed away from kidney cancer in 2006 at 24 years old. He loved nature and spent countless hours exploring the land where he grew up. He hoped to have a yearly race in his memory to raise money for a scholarship fund that would benefit Tunkhannock High School graduating seniors. We're so excited to be hosting this race on the land Damon loved so much!
What’s New for 2022?
We are excited to announce that Falcon Race Timing will be timing our event this year! We are looking forward to working with them and finishing through their big blue arch!
2 Mile Fun Walk!
The 2 mile fun walk will not be timed or have awards. The walk follows Pine Ridge Road to the walker's turnaround at the end of the road, which is about a mile. This is the perfect course if you plan on pushing your little ones in your stroller or aren't looking for a trail walk!
Whats the new course like?
Dirt Roads Fields and Trails!
There may be another change of course! The start and finish will still be at the Young Family property in Centermoreland. The goal is to have both the 10k and 5k run/walk enjoy the trails on the Young's Property.
Pre-registration ends June 16, 2022. Race-day registration will be from 7:00-8:30 AM the morning of the race. Please make checks payable to “Damon S. Young Memorial Scholarship.”
