Run for Jon

peru, NY

About this Event

The 30th Annual Run for Jon will take place on Saturday, August 29th at Forrence Orchards in Peru, NY.  The Run For Jon raises money to support the Jonathan Evans Memorial Fund, designed to help North Country families with expenses connected to the care and treatment of a sick child.

Due to current health concerns, we have made various changes to this year’s event. 

Please read all race information!

There will only be a 2.5 mile course.  There will not be a kids’ fun run or walk event.  Walkers and children are welcome to register for the 2.5 mile event.

In the event that the race is cancelled, all registrants will be entered in the virtual event.
