Thank You to everyone that participated this year!

The 25th Running of the Kutztown Fools Run to be held

Saturday, March 28, 2015

Welcome to the official Website of the Kutztown Fools’ Run. Management of the Fools’ Run was transferred to the highly motivated individuals of the Kutztown Optimist Club in August 2006. This site was developed to provide complete details on the race, including information on registration, sponsorships, results, course maps and more. Please be sure to visit often as the next phase of this Berks Country “running classic” unfolds.


Mission
Once again, this year’s event’s proceeds will support the Optimist Club of Kutztown and the Donald Peters Memorial Scholarship Fund. Through support of our sponsors and the running community, the Optimist Club of Kutztown will continue to provide scholarship assistance to the most promising and deserving students in the Kutztown Area, Brandywine Heights, and Fleetwood Area School Districts. The entire Fools’ Run family welcomes your participation in this year’s event. We wish you the best as you prepare for and compete in one of the area’s finest road races.

Sponsorships

Last year’s event drew the largest amount of runners in memory and allowed the Optimist Club to distribute over $6500 in scholarships to local deserving students. Without the help of our generous sponsors in the past we would not have been able to provide much needed assistance to a few of our most promising and deserving young persons.

 


Don't miss the opportunity to be a part of this traditional event that continues to grow each year.  We are now offering a marquee sponsorship 
for future Fools’ Runs. This opportunity will give your company exclusive naming rights to this event for the next 3 years.
