Laney's Fashionista 5k

Men and Women, Boys and Girls… Come bring your funky fashionista flair!

Each year, we host a 5k event in West Reading in honor and memory of Laney and all the Fighters and families battling pediatric cancer. This year’s course will take you around the beautiful park systems of West Reading and Wyomissing.

We encourage people to dress up in bright, colorful outfits in memory of Delaney’s super fun and fashionable character. There will also be face painting, snacks, a DJ energizing the crowds, and other fun activities for the whole family at Laney’s Annual Fashionista 5K!

Money raised at this event will directly benefit local families with a child fighting pediatric cancer (many of them will be in attendance) and grants for pediatric cancer research.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: If I register multiple runners online, must payment be made separately?

A: Yes, each registration form done online needs the liability portion of the registration read and signed by each runner. So, separate payments must be made for each runner if you choose to pay online.

Q: Are strollers permitted?

A: The course has some narrow areas, with gravel and other areas of loose terrain. Strollers are not recommended on this course but are not prohibited. If you use a stroller, you will be responsible for any accommodations that need to be made on the course to navigate the stroller safely. Laney’s Legacy of Hope will not be held liable for any issues that arise if strollers are brought on the course.

Q: Can I walk?

A: YES! Walkers make up a large number of our participants, so you will be in good company.

Q: Is there a shorter course or a kids course?

A: No. Unfortunately, we will not be doing any shorter courses due to the area we will be running in.

Q: Can I buy a race day shirt without registering?

A: Not at this time. You must register by April 4th to be guaranteed a race shirt. Following that they will be on sale race day but your size may not be available. So, please register by the 10th of April to make sure your shirt is safe.

Q: Can shirts be shipped?

A: Not at this time.

Q: Will the event be canceled if it rains? And will our registration fees be refunded if we don’t attend due to rain?
