Join more than 5,000 women who will run or walk in the Women’s 5K Classic — For Women’s Fitness, for Cancer Survivors, for Cancer Education, for Life — at 9 a.m., October 12, at Little Lehigh Parkway in Allentown. This year’s event includes a 5K Run, 5K Competitive Walk and a 5K Walk in the Park. The festivities begin at 9 a.m. and also include a Parade of Champions. 

Through a unique community effort in the Greater Lehigh Valley, the mission of the Women’s 5K Classic is to promote fitness among women and invite them to participate in running and walking to enhance their physical, mental and emotional well-being. The event also educates women about cancer awareness, prevention and treatment, supports women with breast and female cancers and their families and contributes to funding for related programs and research in the Lehigh Valley.
