For the


Cheer Zone

Words of encouragement and cheers of support from spectators have helped thousands of participants cross the finish line at the Doylestown 5K Race. Your energy and inspiration make a difference! Consider creating a Cheer Zone on this year’s course with your run club, nonprofit organization, business, or neighborhood group to encourage runners on race day.

Sprinklers & Water Zone

Depending on the weather, folks along the race course are encouraged to put out sprinklers or water zones for runners to pass under! If the weather is hot or humid, it provides a cool and very appreciated surprise for our runners! We have a water station that runners will pass twice, located at Linden Elementary School, and water at the finish line for them.
