IRT 10-K is Aug. 27 in Coplay
The 15th annual Ironton Rail Trail (IRT) run/walk will be held Aug. 27, with the starting line at Saylor Park — where Coplay Cement Company Kilns are located — across from Coplay Parkway on North Second Street.
Race day registration is from 7 a.m. to 8:15 a.m. Walkers start 8:30 a.m., and runners begin 9 a.m.
The IRT 10-K race traverses many historical iron and cement buildings in Whitehall Township and Coplay Borough.
Presented by The Emmaus Run Inn, the event will include post-race awards, ceremonies and snacks for all participants.
Awards to runners — male and female — will be given in six age groupings, two in each age group: 19 and under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over.
The event is a major fundraiser for IRT; its trail hosts many organizations with their charity runs.
