Event Information

Chicken What? We’re calling this 5K and Children’s Fun Run the “Chicken Run,” but actually there will be no real chickens running. It is so named in honor of Bruce Hansen, a good man and avid cartoonist whose signature character was a chicken. But, hey, you might want to practice running like a chicken just in case you’re inspired to do so on race day. 5K course on the grounds of Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Park, 1 Memorial Park Dr., Mechanicsburg, PA. Saturday, Oct. 6, 2012 9 a.m. - Registration/packet pick up begins at the Park 10 a.m. - 5K Run begins 10:45 a.m.- Children’s Fun Run begins 11 a.m. - Awards presentation at the finish line Why? To honor the memory of our great friend Bruce J. Hansen and raise funds for the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, an organization Bruce supported. Plus, you’ll get a really cool t-shirt, and you could win a prize. Awards will be given to the overall top finishers (male & female) and the three male & female top finishers in each age group: 19 and under; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60-69, 70+. All children fun run participants will receive a prize, too! Register online at
