St. Mark's Church took over the race in 2006 to serve as a fund raising event for the church. Proceeds have been used for various projects to help the church modernize some aging systems. We plan to forward proceeds from the 2021 event to the same.
The Episcopal Parish of St. Mark and St. John is a combined parish in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania. The building, located at 21 Race Street in Jim Thorpe, is registered on the National Register of Historic Places. For more information on the church and parish, please visit St. Mark's Home Page
