Deadline looms for Logan Guards 5K Run/Walk registration discount

LEWISTOWN – Wednesday is the discount registration deadline for the Logan Guards 5K Run/Walk for Lincoln.

The Mifflin County Historical Society and the Juniata Valley Striders are sponsoring the third annual 5K at 9 a.m. on May 3. The start and finish lines will be near Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Lewistown, which features a stone from President Abraham Lincoln’s tomb.

The entry fee is $15 if registered by Wednesday, or $20 on race day. To encourage families to participate, the entry fee for those ages 13 and younger is $10 in advance and $15 on race day.

This year’s T-shirts, which will be blue with white lettering, will again feature the special logo of a jogging President Abraham Lincoln designed by Mifflin County artist Tim Reeder. Runners and walkers who register by Wednesday will be guaranteed a T-shirt. A limited number of T-shirts will be available to those who register on the day of the race.

Registration forms for the 5K are available at the historical society office in the Historic Mifflin County Courthouse; Falkner Technologies, Market Street, Lewistown; the Lewistown branch of the Mifflin County Library and Mifflin County High School.
