5K and 10K Race | Hands-On House

Hands-on House Race Is On For 2021!

Saturday, September 25, 2021

Bring back that finish line feeling! On Saturday, September 25 Hands-on House will host a 5K and 10K race (using our traditional course) along with a virtual option for those unable to join us in person!

The Hands-on House 5k & 10k walk/run event being held on Saturday, September 25th. Participants receive race T-shirts and medals with additional prizes for top finishers. (T-shirts guaranteed for those who register by September 1st). Great for kids, grownups, and serious runners. Event features electronic timing, water stations, after race refreshments, and traffic control.  

Proceeds aid in providing programming to underprivileged children, enhancing indoor and outdoor exhibits, and offsetting operating costs for Hands-on House. 

Race start time is scheduled for 8:00 am for the 10K and 8:15 for the 5K. On-site parking and shuttle parking will be available. Check back for details.  

Our focus this year is returning to an in-person event and bringing the community back together safely. We will not be holding a half marathon event in 2021, but we will continue to evaluate future options for this distance that offer an enjoyable experience for participants.

The Hands-on House Race supports the programs and exhibits at Hands-on House, Children’s Museum of Lancaster, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
