Held on the first Saturday in July each year, this event benefits the bell restoration fund of the church.

The 15-kilometer race will begin at 8:30 a.m. The 4- mile race, which follows an abbreviated version of the 15-Kilometer run, begins at 8:45. Residents of Jim Thorpe should note that Broadway, West Broadway and Lentz Trail will be closed from the Route 209 intersection to Coal Street between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Race Street and High Street will also be closed during that time period.
