The 27th Running of the Kutztown Fools Run to be held

Saturday, April 1, 2017

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.

Once again, this year’s event’s proceeds will support the Optim
ist 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, Hamburg Area 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.
