Roller Coaster Series

Allentown, PA

Run Lehigh Valley is coming together with Dorney Park to offer THE ROLLER COASTER SERIES. Three unique events that will be quick to become favorites! All events include an entry into Dorney Park! 1. The Lemon Run 5K on June 14 - 8 AM 2. Christmas in July 5K on July 25 - 8 AM 3. The Zombie Run 5K on September 18 - 11 PM We are also offering a VIP package if you register for all three Roller Coaster Events!

About the Lemon Run:

The race will be a wave start, with each wave starting ON STEEL FORCE!  How awesome is that?!  Groups will load the coaster - take a ride and then head off on the 5K course around the park and surrounding area.  Groups of 36 riders will take off each for each wave, so all riders/runners must be at least 48" tall.  Too short or too nervous to ride Steel Force?  That is ok too - just register as a non-rider and we will do a separate wave start for those who do not ride the coaster.

The course will start on Steel Force and travel in and around Dorney Park.  It will be a rolling course on both pavement and some gravel.

Race begins at 8 AM

Christmas in July 5K:
How can a bunch of Santa Claus' running around an amusement park in July be anything but fun?  
Race begins at 8 AM

Zombie 5K:
Dress like a zombie or sign up to be a human...either way come prepared for a great time and a bit of a scare!   We are offering a chance for professional make-up, costume contests and prizes for catching humans throughout the course.  Moving this to the 11 PM start time will really step it up a notch!

Everyone who comes dressed as a Zombie has a chance to catch the "humans" who will be scattered throughout the course wearing flags.  Each flag is worth a prize, but you have to be "Zombied out" to be eligible.  

Packet pick-up from 6 PM - 9:45 PM 
Make-up available from 6 PM - 9 PM (Price ranging from $5-$15 depending on detail)
Costume Contest and Raffles at 10:30 PM
