Rev Run 2023

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA – The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board (VFTCB) raised a record $70,000 for Valley Forge National Historical Park through funds from this year’s 17th annual Valley Forge Revolutionary 5-Mile Run (Rev Run) held in person and virtually in April.

The $70,000 donation is the largest contribution to date by at least 20% and is double the total amount raised from last year’s event. Since its inception in 2006, Rev Run has raised over $600,000 for Park infrastructure improvement projects and programming to enhance visitor experience.

More than 1,200  runners and walkers from 22 different U.S. states and two countries competed in this year’s hybrid race and contributed to the record-breaking race registration, donation, and sponsorship totals.

“The Rev Run embodies a personal mission to continue the community spirit and perseverance of Valley Forge,” said Race Director Kirsten Tallman. “What a great feeling to have Park supporters coming out with an appreciation of Valley Forge and its significant history of determination.”

Projects funded by this year’s race proceeds include sign and park furnishings to improve wayfinding signs and navigation throughout the Park and Once Upon a Nation storyteller programming. Previous projects have included bottle-filling stations, new wayside interpretation panels for the Patriots of African Descent Monument, design of informational midway kiosks, Once Upon a Nation programming, storytelling benches, bike repair stations, the newly renovated Grand Parade Trail Steuben Plaza area, and other trail connections.

The VFTCB also announced the official date of next year’s event which will be held both in-person at the Park and virtually on April 21, 2024. Registration and sponsorship information will be coming soon.

Returning in 2024 will be finisher medals and a Revolutionary Run commemorative t-shirt for all participants. Cash prizes with a purse totaling $1,400 will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers of the in-person portion of the race. Sponsorships will also be available starting at $250, with upgraded digital sponsorship opportunites via the tourism board’s social media, website, and public relations efforts.
