Roba Family Orchard is partnering with the Ronald McDonald House of Scranton to put on one of the most exciting events in Northeastern Pennsylvania! This means RMH is adding a second race to the running season and creating the first charitable series. The Roba Family Orchard 5K Race and Fun Walk is set for August 12, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. where runners and walkers will begin their trek through the paths of trees at the beautiful orchard. Registered recipients will receive a super cool dry-fast tech t-shirt and a great swag bag with tons of goodies. The 5K will be chip-timed with results ready at you cell phone in real time! BUT WAIT!!! This very family friendly 5K and fun walk just got better because the generous folks at Roba Family Orchard are opening the park up for free for those who register for the 5K. That means the rides and attractions will be open free of charge! Again, after the race, all participants are welcomed to stay and experience the orchard at its fullest free of charge! The Corn Maze, Cow Train Express, Corn Box, and Pumpkin Bounce are all among the amazing attractions at the Orchard that you will be able to experience if you participate in this first inaugural race! There are even more Star Wars characters will be walking through the park ready for pictures and having a blast with all of the children that attend! There will be a cookout for everyone to enjoy along with a celebration for the families that have stayed at the Ronald McDonald House over the years. This is an event that you will NOT want to miss! We hope to see you there!
THIS 5K IS THE FIRST IN THE RMH RACE SERIES THIS YEAR. The second race of the 2017 series will be the famous Show Your Stripes 5K on the 24th of September. So keep your ears to the ground for more information.
