Cobbs Creek 5K Run/Walk

posted in

Rain didn't dampen the first annual Darby-Cobbs 5K Run/Walk on April 23rd—approximately 150 participants and mayors from three municipalities (including Philadelphia's own mayor, Michael Nutter) showed up for the event. The runners and walkers were able to enjoy the scenic setting of Cobbs Creek Park and experience the unique, trail-like nature of the course. The Philadelphia Water Department was proud to co-sponsor the event, held to raise awareness of the resources of Cobbs Creek Park. All proceeds from the 5K go directly toward revitalization of the park. Learn more about the park here or check out the activities and resources available at the Cobbs Creek Environmental Education Center. Thank you to our friends and co-sponsors:
