Philadelphia, PA – Independence Blue Cross (Independence) proudly announces its sponsorship of the Rocky Run Trail Race 5K, 10K, and Kids Fun Run, taking place on Friday, May 15 at the Rocky Run YMCA (1299 West Baltimore Pike) in Media, PA. The 5K and 10K trail race will begin on the YMCA’s outside track and then enter into the trails behind its building, an area that encompass some of the most beautiful streams in Delaware County.

The trail races, which are put on by the Rocky Run YMCA — a branch of the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA that serves Media, Aston, Newtown Square, Edgemont, Springfield, and the surrounding communities — begin at 6 p.m. with the Kids Fun Run (children ages 12 and under can enter). Following the Kids Fun Run are the 10K Trail Run at 6:15 p.m. and 5K Trail Run at 6:30 p.m. Those participating in the runs will be eligible for a dry fit shirt, post-race refreshments and giveaways.
