About the event

AppRunCo - Altoona’s second annual “First Responder Memorial Race” will take place on Sept. 11, 2022. The 5K walk/run will take place at Lakemont Park, and proceeds will be donated to the Department of Emergency Services in Blair County. Lakemont Park is a co-sponsor of the event. 

This year, we will also offer a FREE kids' 1 mile race that will take place after the 5K (ages 0-12). Lakemont Park will offer a coupon for a $5.50 wristband that day to all kids who participate in the 1-mile race!

The original Appalachian Running Company opened in 2008 in Carlisle PA, and quickly became the go-to destination for the regional running community. As the stores have grown and expanded over the years, adding an Altoona location in 2021, we have put our passion for running into a passion for serving those who now run alongside us, regardless of athletic ability or speed.

Lakemont Park has been in operation since 1894. They have been a part of the Blair County community for generations and are constantly striving to make it a better place for people of all ages. To learn more, visit their website:
