Overview



Come run and help India Carry the Water:
All proceeds provide clean water projects in India, enabling women to pursue job and educational opportunities instead of having to walk for miles to fetch water, ensuring men have reliable water sources for their crops and livestock, and allowing children to enjoy the sweetness of a good bath and clean water so they can grow up healthy and strong.

Optional - Help Carry the Water:
During the race, all participants will have the opportunity to carry water across the finish line and help fill our Celebration Water Barrel for corporate sponsorship. The more water we carry, the more funds we raise!

In spring, 2019, a record field of over 270 registered for the event. Chris Squires led the field in 1:14, while Brittany Sandora led the women across the finish line in 21:05.  The event was cancelled in 2020 and 2021, another victim to the pandemic.

The event will be held at the Morrisville Community Park located at 1520 Morrisville Parkway in Morrisville and will begin a 5 pm.  The course is out-and-back on the Park’s greenway trail.

 Participants can choose to participate as a timed or untimed entrant. All finishers in both categories will be able to see their finishing times on a digital clock at the finish line, but only those registered as Timed Entrants will be eligible for prizes. 

​The entry fee is $25 until February 19, then increasing to $30 until March1.  The fee then goes to $35 beginning March 2nd until race day. On race day the entry fee will be $45. Children ages 12 and under can register for free. A t-shirt is guaranteed to the first 300 paid entrants.

​Gift certificates from sponsors will be given to the top three males overall, to the top three females overall, and to the top finishers in each of the following age groups (both sexes): 17 & under, 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 & over.
