The 9th annual Fishtown RiverCity Festival will kick off with a 5k FUN RUN through the Fishtown neighborhood on a semi-closed course, beginning and ending at Penn Treaty Park. As always this fun run will raise funds to support The Fishtown Neighbors Association.

We will once again partner with the Fishtown Beer Runners. FBR is no stranger to running and enjoying a brew post-5k (or longer). Their goal is to combine responsible running and consumption in the interest of science. Fishtown Beer Runners will mark the course to encourage and provide direction for all runners. Look for FBR members to dole out high-fives as you run, too!

All registrants will get a sweet Tech T-shirt! Be sure and register early to secure your shirt and goodies!

SnapKitchen is supplying the swag bags and Honeygrow is donating 25% off coupons to be put in all of the bags. We’re also going to hide prizes in random bags. Included will be three pairs of tickets to see Fortune Feimster at the Punch Line Comedy Club at the Fillmore on October 21st.  Also hidden will be 5 $25 gift cards to SnapKitchen. We’re expecting more prizes and swag to be added by race day. There will be so many good things you’re gonna plotz!
