Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress © ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

Hazleton 5/10K TOWN & TRAIL Run/WALK



What does an open door mean to you? Does it mean welcome home, open for business, or a new opportunity to pursue? The Downtown Hazleton Alliance for Progress is proud to have partnered with Hazleton POWER!, the Hazleton Art League, and the Sage Exchange in sponsoring a door mural project that encouraged everyone to express their thoughts on this topic through art. A vintage, reclaimed door was the canvas. We received 23 entries, which were displayed throughout the downtown on September 12th. Other exhibits are being planned. To view the doors online and vote for your favorites, visit our Facebook album.


This run will take place on Saturday, October 18, 2014 beginning at 9AM. Both races will start and finish at the Greater Hazleton Rail Trail. For more information or to register, visit:
