Important News about our 5K!
If you missed our email sent out from earlier this year here is info regarding our 5K normally held on Memorial Day. It will be moved to a fall date for 2018.

We have several reasons for the date change, but the biggest one is that we want to benefit the community with our events. Having a race at 7 am on a holiday Monday does not benefit the merchants in our downtown, as they are not open and no one sticks around after the race. What we want is a true community event, something in the late afternoon where restaurants can set up tables on the sidewalk, people will come to Lansdowne to watch the race, and then we can have an after party (if we want) and keep everyone in town, shopping and eating, etc.
The Veterans of the Memorial Day Parade has issued a "Thank you" for the date change because turns out they didn't like being in competition for the road closure with our race.

So we hope you will watch for our later date announcement and info that will come in the next few months! Thanks for your understanding!

On June 13, we celebrated with Pennsylvania Downtown Center at their 30th year Anniversary Gala. We were honored to be the recipient of one of their Townie Awards for our ‘LEDC Marketing Strategy.’ We were selected as a winner of the award for Promotions and Marketing: General Image & Identity category. The Pennsylvania Downtown Center has worked with many organizations over the years. Their teachings of the Main Street four-point approach as a guiding compass to build a strategic plan for our community have proven invaluable to Lansdowne.
