About Us
The Race Street run is a revival of a dual-event roadrace once put on by the Switchback Roadrunners club. The run was last done by the club in the mid-1990's. St. Mark's Church took over the race in 2006 to serve as a fund raising event for the church. Proceeds from last year's record turnout went to the fund to have the church's set of bells upgraded, a $45,000 endeavour. We plan to forward proceeds from this year's event to the same.

The Episcopal Parish of St. Mark and St. John is a combined parish in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. The building, located at 21 Race Street in Jim Thorpe, is registered on the National Register of Historic Places. For more information on the church and parish, please visit St. Mark's Home Page.
