The Duryea at Dusk committee has set their fourth Duryea at Dusk 5K and 1-mile walk as a virtual race this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.  Participants can register online now through Saturday, June 13.  Participants are encouraged to complete their 5K or 1-mile safely around their neighborhood, on a treadmill, track or at a park between June 13-20. The cost to register is $10 per person or $20 per person with a Duryea at Dusk 2020 t-shirt. All runners and walkers will receive a customizable Duryea at Dusk virtual bib and can post their finisher photos on Duryea at Dusk’s Facebook page.

Through personal experience with a family member battling cancer, Duryea native sisters, Katie Brudzinski and Allison Brudzinski wanted to be part of something bigger that would involve their entire community. Duryea at Dusk was created from that idea. This is the fourth year of this event. It will impact the local community and support a local organization, the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute, whose mission is to ease the burden of cancer in northeastern Pennsylvania.
