Rudolph to Lead Runners on Romp Through Streets of Middletown

Rudolph's Romp, a 5-kilometer race through the streets of historic Middletown, will return for its second running on December 21.

Already Middletown's longest running Holiday tradition, the race benefits the Middletown Public Library. Last year's event, which featured almost 250 runners, raised close to $10,000 for the Library. Organizers hope to well exceed that amount this year.

Beginning and ending in beautiful Hoffer Park, along the Swatara Creek, Rudolph’s Romp covers a fast, mostly flat course, with no significant hills (just 62 feet total elevation gain).

This year's race will offer some of the same amenities as the inaugural edition:

• Long-sleeve wicking T-shirts
• Warm beverages and refreshments at the finish
• Prizes for top 3 overall male and female finishers and for all age group winners

Added enhancements this year include chip timing and online registration
