Can you? Will you?......... Beat Beethoven?

4th Annual Beat Beethoven 5K/1KWalk, Thursday, June 16, 2016 at 6:30 pm at Anson B. Nixon Park!

The Kennett Symphony presents its 4th annual Beat Beethoven 5K Run/1K Walk on Thursday, June 16, 2016, 6:30 pm. The Run/Walk is for all ages and abilities of runners and walkers.  Besides having fun and supporting the Kennett Symphony, the object of the race is to finish before Beethoven’s famous 5th Symphony finishes – approximately 32 minutes.  Beethoven himself will be running too, so keep your eye on the runner dressed as our very own Beethoven and make it your goal to finish ahead of him!  Everyone welcome! Bring your friends, family and fellow music lovers to support the Kennett Symphony. Proceeds benefit the Kennett Symphony of Chester County.
