Supporting Southern Chester County
Years of Running thru Kennett Square
5K & 10K Run
Take in the beautiful scenery of Southern Chester County as you run thru lovely Kennett Square and its rolling hills with a convenient start/finish at Anson B Nixon Park
Kids Fun Run! & 1 Mile Walk/Run
An easy feat for yourself or the little ones who love the pond at Anson B. Nixon Park. Take on an easy 1 mile walk or run and enjoy the fun festivities after.
Celebrate your accomplishments with the other runners/walkers at our fun-filled post-race party complete with food, beverages and entertainment.
Our sponsors are a key part of the Kennett Run family. They are businesses that believe a strong community is essential to building a strong business, and act on that belief by investing in the Kennett Run. In return, we provide the first community event of the spring to bring our residents and their friends outdoors to socialize, exercise, and compete. Each person choosing which aspect of the Run to emphasize.
After the Run, we turn around and invest the profits of the Run into Southern Chester County nonprofits, key institutions dedicated to constantly strengthening our community by providing education, health, social, and environmental services to everyone.
We hope you will join us as we continue our efforts to build an even stronger community by running, walking, volunteering, or simply cheering the runners on as they pass you on the street.
Meals on Wheels of Chester County
"Meals on Wheels of Chester County greatly appreciates the faithful support of the Kennett Run Charities organization. Their funds have helped purchase hot, nutritious meals for homebound seniors in the Kennett Square, Avondale and West Grove areas since 2013. We are grateful for our partnership with the Kennett Run to make sure no senior goes hungry!"
