Unfortunately the decision has been made to cancel the Arts Festival due to COVID-19. We are disappointed, but realize the importance of emphasizing public health and safety.
The Pennsylvania Personal Injury attorneys at Marcus & Mack are thrilled to be sponsoring the 2020 Arts Festival Races! Race proceeds will benefit youth running activities in Centre County and continuing the operations of Nittany Valley Running Club. The Arts Festival Races are the oldest races in Central Pennsylvania, as the first one was held in 1976! There will be a 5K, 10K, and Kids Race that all start in Snider Ag Arena. The races will take place on Sunday, July 12th and will take you along the scenic routes of Penn State’s bike trails that go through the woods and past agricultural landscapes. In 2006, the races were renamed the Sue Crowe Memorial Arts Festival Races to honor Sue Crowe, who was a local running legend that gave back to the local running community through her efforts of coaching young competitors.
Marcus & Mack are committed to community involvement and working towards bettering the State College area as a whole. We hope to inspire residents of Western Pennsylvania to get involved in this wonderful cause and take part in the Sue Crowe Memorial Arts Festival Races this summer. The Arts Festival Races are run in conjunction with the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, the area’s main summer outdoor festival which brings over 100,000 people to Pennstate University’s campus. The event offers many art experiences in addition to the race including a Sidewalk Sale Exhibition, a gallery exhibition, music, dance, and performances at eight different venues. Enjoy the last days of summer by participating in a large community event that brings everyone together. To register for the race or learn more, click here.
