Festival and 5K Information

What’s New for 2022?

The Schoener 5K is fully in person in 2022! No more virtual for us! Look for the circus tent on Arlington Field behind the Arlington Mansion (Toppitzer Funeral Home)! We will kick off the day’s festivities at 8:30 am with the  NEW “Running of the Royals” as we “hold court” and crown the 2022 King (or Queen) of the Upper Darby Royal Family!  Don’t be surprised if you see and hear from some special guests to cheer on our race participants! Families are encouraged to complete the 5K or the 1 Mile Spirit Walk together and then…

Join us at the MusicMan Festival (following the closing of the 5K) 12 noon – 4 pm on Saturday, May 21st! Visit the striped tent behind Toppitzer Funeral Home in Arlington Cemetery — a family-friendly event with live music, local artisans, food vendors, kids’ activities… all in a beautiful setting! Keep checking this site for more updates!
