The Be a Fan Torch Run for Special Olympics PA is a segmented non-competitive run (approx. 150 miles) with 53 segments ranging from a 2.5 mile to 4 miles, beginning on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at 7:00am. The Be a Fan Torch Run will kick off from PNC Park in Pittsburgh before weaving its way throughout Western and Central Pennsylvania and into the Opening Ceremonies of the Summer Games at Pegula Ice Arena in State College.
The Run will be led by members of law enforcement from across Pennsylvania, all of whom will take part in this unique and inspiring journey.
The Be a Fan Torch Run also serves as a run in memory of fallen officers from across the state and won’t officially end until the Flame of Hope lights the cauldron during the Summer Games Opening Ceremonies at Penn State, on Thursday, June 6, 2019.
