Williamsport, Pa. – The Fourth Annual Spring Forward for United Way 5K is virtual this year and is currently underway until Sunday, April 4. This 5K run/walk is a great way to get some miles in as the weather gets nicer. 

Last year, we were able to have our race around the scenic Williamsport Country Club, but due to COVID-19 we were forced to go virtual. The benefit is that now until April 4, you can register and run/walk your 3.1 miles anytime, anywhere.

Raining today? Do it tomorrow!

The cost is only $20 without a shirt or $30 with a shirt. And to make it even better, once you run, you can head over to New Trail Brewing Company and they will provide you with a complimentary beverage of choice as well as a sticker. All you need to do is show them your registration at the counter.


Last year, the Lycoming County United Way successfully raised more than $13,000 and hopes to raise even more this year with the help of our sponsors and our community members.

With the funds raised, the United Way will continue fighting for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in Lycoming County.
