VIRTUAL EVENT

Virtual 25th Annual Narberth CF Run & Walk

5 Mile Run & 2 Mile Walk

COVID-19 ANNOUNCEMENT – Due to COVID-19, and for the safety of our participants, volunteers and spectators we will be transitioning this year’s Narberth CF Run & Walk into a VIRTUAL event. All Registrations for the 4-25 date have transferred to the virtual event. This includes this year’s event shirt. No need to re-register!

Our 25th Annual

Beginning as a centennial celebration for Narberth Borough in 1995, the Narberth 5 Mile Run has flourished to become one of the best small town five milers in the country. 25 years ago, the McCloskey and Nardi families, both from Narberth and both having sons living with cystic fibrosis (CF) continued hosting the event. Proceeds from the first Narberth CF Run supported a wish for a local child battling cystic fibrosis (CF), who received his care at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He and his family took a breather from CF and enjoyed a magical trip to Disney World.

The run grew and in 2012, developed into the Take A Breather Foundation. Led by Executive Director, Matt McCloskey, who has CF and had a double-lung transplant in 2015, and many friends- new and old- and family, the Narberth Run and Take A Breather Foundation have provided over 250 wishes, or “breathers” for children and adults battling cystic fibrosis since the first run 25 years ago.
