Battle of the Burgs is Almost Here!

Jun 18, 2015 08:54AM ● By Erica Shames

Volunteers for the Battle of the ‘Burgs met recently at Ard's to iron out the final details for the race and post-race party June 19, starting at 6:30 p.m. The event is a fundraiser for the Michael P. Baker Community Impact Fund, which distributes funds to area families struggling with catastrophic illness or circumstance.

Racers – both walkers and runners – have the option to start at either the Lewisburg or Mifflinburg end of the Buffalo Valey Rail Trail. The race end point is the middle of the trail, at Ard’s. A post-race celebration takes place 7 to 9:30, featuring an all-you-can-eat BBQ, live music from Folk Justice Band and beer tastings from Rusty Rail Microbrewery.

There are a few slots left for the race – and lots of room at the party. But sign up today at to make sure you get in.
