5K run to benefit Berwick YMCA

PPL’s Community of Volunteers, the Berwick Area YMCA and the Berwick Marathon Association will sponsor the 5K Great Pumpkin Run/Fun Walk along the trails of PPL’s Susquehanna Riverlands.

The race will begin at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 31, at the Susquehanna Riverlands Large Pavilion.

The course is flat and covers an out, two loops and back. The walk will take the same course. More information on registration, fees and awards is available by calling the YMCA at 570-759-1300. All proceeds benefit the YMCA.

The Susquehanna Riverlands, along Route 11 about seven miles north of Berwick, is operated by PPL in conjunction with its Susquehanna nuclear power plant in Salem Township. The preserve, encompassing 1,200 acres on both the east and west banks of the Susquehanna River, has been providing the residents of north central Pennsylvania with quality recreation, fishing and environmental education since 1980.
