On the third Friday of June each year, the community comes together for the Media 5 Mile Race. This USATF certified 2.5 mile course loops twice through the residential and business areas of Media, PA.
For over 39 years, the 5 Mile Race has been an integral part of the Media Community. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, the Media 5 Mile supports community outreach and donates proceeds to 20 other non-profits that serve the Media Area.
With thanks to our Sponsors, Volunteers, Board Members and community members, we are committed to placing our runners, residents and broader community first.
Get Ready For The Finish Line
The 2.5 mile, double loop course is a challenge. The short, steep and long rising hills on this course, as well as the twists and turns, brings out the beast in runners. The diverse participants range from former Olympians, university and high school star athletes, seasoned teams, and less competitive, but goal oriented, runners. Certified by the USATF, many runners use their time here to help qualify for larger races. Runners from across the country come back to Media each year to participate.
