Pre-registration is available by calling the JCC at 824-4646 or online at jewishwilkes-barre.org. Registration the day of the race will begin at 9 a.m. The fee for the race is $17.

The JCC, in an effort to create more interest in its two yearly races, has decided to create a cash incentive award of $150 for the top male and top female runner of both races, the River Street Run and Walk and the Ben August Memorial Run and Walk, held in the fall. This cash award will be based on the average two times of the runners, not the finishing position.
