Joe’s Run 5k – Walk – Palmyra Natures Cove

Joe’s Run 5k — Joseph L. Manghan IV was a talented Pennsauken grad who fought a long, hard fight to annihilate Ewing’s Sarcoma. He was 23 years old when he passed in 2018. Joe’s Run is dedicated to his fond memory, and is a fun, scenic race which will raise scholarship money for a deserving Pennsauken Graphic Arts student. The Pennsauken Cross Country team has jumped on board to help prep a fun, slightly less intricate version of their 5k high school racing course at the Palmyra, New Jersey Nature Cove. Patrick Rodio is the overall organizer of the race.

*** PLEASE NOTE – There will also be an option to walk an alternate route! That’s right, you can run the 5k race or walk a slightly varied trail as well!

Awards for Overall Male and Female, plus 1st place medals for male and female in under 12, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+.

Early registration is $20 (until 11:59pm on 3/1/19), and $25 the day of the race.

Please share this race! As of 01/19/2019 we had around 80 people signed up and we look to make this race into a high competitive and FUN race in honor of Joe. Dr. Craig Evans and his wife Lauren are already signed up for this race! We look forward to running and supporting the ever growing running community in South Jersey!

COURSE INFO —
The course starts and finishes at the Palmyra Nature Cove Welcome Center. This 5k course covers mixed surfaces, including gravel, grass and dirt trails, and some pavement. It is similar to that of a cross country course. In fact, the Cove is where Pennsauken High School hosts its home cross country races. The start and finish run on the main Cove Trail, parallel to the Delaware River. Other highlights include loops past Bullfrog Pond and Beaver Pond. You are sure to spot some wildlife during the race, such as deer and turkeys.

The 1st mile (red line) goes out on the Cove trail, with the Delaware River on your right. It loops around the Dredge Retention Basin (aka “The Square”) and comes back toward the start. The 2nd mile (blue line) loops around Bullfrog Pond, and then heads out on the only stretch of pavement on the course, and eventually picks up the Perimeter Trail. The 3rd mile  (black line) continues on the Perimeter Trail, past Beaver Pond, until you make the final right turn onto the Cove Trail. The final half mile of the course follows the Cove Trail (now with the Delaware River on your left) all the way back to the Welcome Center.
