The Pennsylvania Dutch Council is collaborating with the Wolf Sanctuary of PA to host a Virtual Race over the month of June 2021. Proceeds from the race will be shared between the Wolf Sanctuary of PA and the Pennsylvania Dutch Boy Scout Council. We are encouraging our Scouting families and the community to join us by running, walking, biking, hiking, or shuffling a 5K or 15K at home, in their neighborhood, on a track, or on their favorite trail, so long as they follow social distancing guidelines. Each participant will be emailed a bib that they can print and are asked to share a picture of their race on the Virtual Race Facebook event page!

The $15.00 registration fee will include a print at home bib and a patch to commemorate the race.

To register for the race visit
