Lace up your running shoes and get your heart pumping for a good cause. The Run for the Red marathon returns to the Poconos this May! The race has developed a reputation among runners for its fun circuit and pleasant weather, and it consistently draws a large crowd of both runners and spectators. As the name implies, proceeds from the race benefit the Red Cross.

Three Ways to Run
The Run for the Red will involve three separate races: a full marathon, a half marathon, and a 5k road race. Due to the bridge wok on PA 191, the organizers have had to chart a new course, and the 2019 event will feature a unique route for the marathon. They note that this should be the only year that deviates from the traditional route, however. If you’ve run this race before, you may want to check out a Run for the Red map to familiarize yourself with the new path. That evening, you can get your carb fix at a celebratory pasta dinner at the East Stroudsburg High School South.
