Race Information

Race for the Watershed is a 5k trail run at the Newlin Grist Mill, located at 219 S. Cheyney Rd. Glen Mills, PA 19342. The event is sponsored by the Newlin Grist Mill and Concord Township Delaware County.

Help support healthy waterways in the community! This family-friendly event will help raise money to restore and preserve the watershed in the park. Funds raised will go toward the purchase and installation of water quality monitoring equipment along the stream that runs through Newlin Grist Mill.

The day will kick off with a 5K race (or walk) on the trails, followed by rubber duck races in the creek. In addition, there will be food vendors and activities throughout the day!
