Run the Gates is an officially sanctioned Bucks County Roadrunner event. We are also co-sponsored by and one of a host of activities offered by the Middletown Township Department of Parks and Recreation. These two organizations have been with us since we made the move to Forsythia Crossing Park and we could not pull this event off without them.
Run the Gates prides itself on our stadium-style event for spectators and families. The runners start, run through, and finish in Forsythia Crossing Park — shielded from all traffic. The RTG crew, in a few hours, transforms this normally tranquil venue into a true athletic arena. They then leave no trace and restore it to its pre-race splendor.
The committee owes a debt of gratitude to the Middletown Township Department of Parks and Recreation and their dedicated staff and workers who each year help us plan and provide us with logistical support. We also want to express our appreciation to the Penndel-Middletown Rescue Squad for providing us with an emergency crew for the duration of the event.
